Kittery’s Interim Police Chief Ted Short said three women were arrested following separate solicitation for sex attempts at a Kittery hotel.

Short refused to identify the hotel but said an undercover police officer used advertisements he found on two Internet sites – Backpage and Craigslist – to meet the women.

Amy Boutin, 34, of Biddeford and 30-year-old Nedra Levasseur of South Portland were each charged with engaging in prostitution, possession of a scheduled drug, and violations of conditions of release. Ryanne McCann, 26, of Rollingsford, N.H. was charged with engaging in prostitution, according to Short.

“We want to send a strong message that this type of activity is not going to be tolerated in Kittery and those violating laws relating to prostitution will face criminal prosecution,” Short said in a statement.
