PAWTUCKET, R.I. (AP/WBZ NewsRadio) — Police and court records say two Rhode Island strip club dancers charged with stealing a Boston police officer's gun are alleging the officer paid them $2,500 for sex.
The Providence Journal reports the records say the two women told authorities Boston officer Emanuel Brandao arranged a "date" with them last weekend that ended at a Pawtucket, Rhode Island, hotel.
Brandao allegedly met one of the woman, Neish Rivera, on Instagram. Rivera referred to herself has "Natalia." They met up at the Hampton Inn in Pawtucket.
The records say Brandao told police he and the women were "hanging out" and he discovered his gun was missing after they left. The gun was later found at a fire station.
