Bump in the road
Police cited a 31-year-old Auburn woman for driving with a suspended license at about 4 a.m. April 22 and discovered she was a professional escort visiting a client in Sammamish. Police stopped the woman along the 4400 block of Issaquah-Pine Lake Road Southeast for driving without headlights. Police grew suspicious about inconsistencies in the woman’s reasons for visiting Sammamish, particularly after she mentioned she could not find a job because she was a convicted felon and sex offender. She identified a Sammamish resident after police asked if she knew anybody to pick up the car. Police drove to the man’s nearby house to contact him, but he was too intoxicated to drive. The man did not know the woman’s real name and, after further questioning, admitted he found her on a website frequently used for prostitution and paid her $100.
