Sands Prostitution Arrests

On Friday evening, January 20, 2012, a criminal investigation was conducted at the Sands Casino Hotel by the City of Bethlehem Police Department. This investigation was conducted by Officers from the Special Operations Unit, the Street Crimes Unit and the Criminal Investigation Division. Sands Security and the Pennsylvania State Police Gaming Unit at Sands assisted in this investigation.

This investigation was the result of information received by the City of Bethlehem Police Department and Sands Security that several females were at the casino to conduct unlawful activities. With cooperation from Sands Casino and Sands Security, Detectives arrested six (6) individuals on charges of Prostitution and Related Offenses.

This investigation was successful because of the continued cooperation that exists between Sands Casino and the City of Bethlehem Police Department when matters of public safety and/or unlawful activities are discovered.

All individuals arrested in this investigation were also issued Trespass Notices by Sands Casino. If any of these individuals re-enter any Sands Casino property, they will face a charge of Criminal Trespass.
