    ND - 'Babe Buses' and crime in North Dakota oilfields

    The strain on law enforcement is demonstrated by statistics from the North Dakota Sheriffs & Deputies Association. The Williams County Sheriff’s Office in Williston reports that there are as many DWIs issued at 10 a.m. as are issued at midnight. Jail bookings have increased 150 percent, and bonds as large as $10,000 are routinely paid in cash. (One person paid a $65,000 bond by pulling the cash out of a Walmart shopping bag.) Law enforcement can no longer do anything but answer calls, make arrests and investigate crimes. The proliferation of strip clubs and “babe buses”—which are basically strip clubs (or worse) operating out of an RV—has also added to the frontier-town atmosphere, according to the Williams County Sheriff’s Office. The same sources say they are seeing hard drugs that they have never seen before, such as black tar heroin.

    As thousands of men move to Williston, North Dakota seeking high-paying jobs working for oil companies, area strippers have seen their salaries skyrocket, CNNMoney reports. Strippers claim that they can make $2,000 to $3,000 per night in tips -- more than in typical strip club hot spots like Las Vegas -- dancing for the oil rig workers, many of whom moved to the town without their families.

    News organizations from North Dakota, which is experiencing an oil boom, report that thousands of new employees have overwhelmed housing in the area, setting up campers in parking lots and flooding the state's probation and parole system.

    A column in the Wayne County Press noted that "babe buses," complete with live entertainment aboard, shuttle people between strip clubs and housing clusters in some North Dakota communities.

    North Dakota prostitution law

    North Dakota punishes those who engage in prostitution or help to promote or facilitate it in any form. Ranging in severity from being classified as a class B misdemeanor or being considered a class C felony, North Dakota prohibits all forms of prostitution. The state laws divide prostitution and related crimes into three separate divisions: prostitution, promotion and facilitation.

    WILLISTON, N.D. (CNNMoney) -- As oil companies pump more and more crude out of the ground and workers from around the country arrive to cash in on the black gold rush, a new wave of crime has taken over the once quiet towns of Northwestern North Dakota.

    Within the last few months, a Watford City pharmacy was robbed of $16,000 in narcotics, four people were stabbed at a local strip club in Williston, a semi truck crashed into an RV full of people sleeping and the first prostitution ring in decades was busted.

    We are approx. 300 miles south of Williston and are seeing families crammed into motel rooms and campers in RV parking. I've gotten sandwiches and water for people standing at the parking lot entrance to WalMart who have gotten stranded trying to get to the Bakken Fields. Last week there was a young woman with a stranded sign, she was able to get help locally to continue on. So many people need the money and they head to the Bakken area for work. Some don't make it there and don't realize, except for truckers, there is no means of public transportation.

    Even when people get to the fields, there is very little accomodations. The companies are making money but it is at the communities' expense.A small SD town near us, where some workers are staying, has had 2 reported rapes in one week. That is very unusual for the town.

    Sheriff: Man writing book on kindness shot in Mont

    A West Virginia man who told authorities he was hitchhiking across the country and writing a memoir about kindness was injured in a seemingly random drive-by shooting near Montana's booming Bakken oil patch.

    Ray Dolin, 39, was shot in the arm as he approached a pickup Saturday evening thinking the driver was offering him a ride, said Valley County Sheriff Glen Meier.

    The shooting follows another random attack earlier this year in which a popular 43-year-old teacher from the oil patch town of Sidney, Mont., was allegedly kidnapped and killed by two Colorado men on their way to the Bakken.

    As the two Colorado men wait trial in that case for the alleged murder of teacher Sherry Arnold's death, the case has stoked worries that a once-quiet corner of Montana has been irreversibly altered by the oil boom.
