Kennewick — Two women who allegedly advertised themselves as escorts on the internet were arrested Sunday night after police say they barricaded themselves in a motel room they were working out of.
The Kennewick Police Departments Criminal Apprehension Team went to the motel to arrest Megan E. Dickenson, 25, of Shelton and Sarah L. Brown, 26, of Montesano, after receiving a tip they were advertising on Backpage.com, according to a release. Both women had outstanding felony warrants.
The women refused to come out when police arrived and barricaded themselves inside the room, according to the release. Police obtained a search warrant and found the women hiding in a cabinet in the room.
Both women were arrested and booked into the Benton County jail.
