When officers knocked on the front and back doors of the Aaron Drive apartment and announced it was the Middletown Police, inside lights were turned off and they could hear rustling inside, according to a police report.

After several minutes and several attempts of knocking on the door, a man came to the door and told police there was no one else inside.

One woman came down the stairs and told police that her friend was still upstairs.

Upstairs, police found Samantha Bolton and two men. Bolton told police that the men were going to pay her and the other woman for sexual favors and there were drugs involved as well, according to the police report.
