Police BulletinComplaint leads to prostitution charge
A call to police about suspicious activity led to a prostitution charge against a Pleasanton woman. Kelle Ann Brossard was arrested Oct. 8 at her home in the 700 block of Palomino Drive, according to a police report.
Pleasanton Lt. Scott Rohovit said these cases happen from time to time although they are not common in Pleasanton.
"We have cases that surface through various means," Rohovit said. "Oftentimes they get encountered at hotels in town, often through the Internet."
In August, a man was arrested after fleeing Alameda County deputies conducting a prostitution sting, allegedly with an underage runaway in his car when he crashed in Pleasanton.
In September 2009 a woman was arrested on prostitution charges at the intersection of Stanley Boulevard and California Avenue; and between 2006 and 2008, there were three larger scale prostitution stings, with 13 arrests in 2006 following a joint operation involving the Alameda County Sheriff's Office and Pleasanton police.
In 2007, Tranquility Health Center on Main Street was closed after an undercover prostitution operation; and in 2008, a joint undercover operation netted 56 arrests at hotels in Castro Valley and Dublin.
