Two exotic dancers in Rhode Island are charged with stealing a Boston Police officer's gun while he was "hanging out" with them in his Rhode Island hotel room, police say.
Boston Police Sgt. John Boyle confirmed an officer is on paid administrative leave, pending an investigation.
Police confirm officers in Pawtucket arrested Melissa Dacier and 25-year-old Neish Rivera, and recovered the weapon Saturday, hours after it was reported missing.
The officer called police just before 3 a.m., and said the night began with a plan to meet "Natalia," a woman he met on Instagram who was actually Rivera, at the hotel bar, and they would then meet her friend "Melissa," who was actually Dacier, before heading to the Cadillac Lounge.
The officer said he had locked the weapon with a cable lock inside his glove box before going to the club, and the three "spent some time" there before going back to the Hampton Inn.
The report said the officer and the women "hung out" and then "Melissa" said she needed a phone charger before the officer gave her the keys to get the charger from his car.
The police report says the woman returned and allegedly said she had to "step out to use the phone," before "Natalia" said she had to go find her friend before allegedly leaving the hotel.
When both didn't return, the officer allegedly went to look for the women and checked his car, where his glove box was open and his gun had been taken.
One of the dancers, Rivera, was charged with prostitution at the Foxy Lady in December and pleaded not guilty last month to the charges.
