UPDATE (1/24, 9:06 p.m.) Court documents revealed new details about this case involving 21-year-old Jamar Drummer who was arrested for allegedly trafficking two teen girls at a local hotel.
 
On Christmas, a mom of one of the girls called police to tell them that she thought her daughter was involved in prostitution. Police learned they were at the Red Lion Inn on Dec. 26, 2017.
 
One of the people they took into custody there had an outstanding felony warrant from KHSD PD for assault with a deadly weapon at the time.
 
This suspect was taken into Juvenille Hall on Jan. 2. She admitted to police that she gave Drummer money to create an ad on Backspace.com and would give him money after performing sexual acts for money. She later said the money was going toward food and gifts, however.
 
Police also talked another one of the girls who eventually admitted she paid Drummer to make her an ad as well, but denied paying after sex acts. She would give him money as gifts or money for rides, according to the document.
 
On Jan. 4 Bakersfield Police officers conducted an undercover operation at Vagaboond Inn and made contact with Drummer, two girls and one other guy in a hotel room.
 
The other guy said he had nothing to do with the alleged prostitution and only bought the room because one of the girls said she didn't have an ID.
 
He had a gun in his waistband, but it was legally registered to him. He was cited for carrying it illegally.
