Man arrested in Wyoming on sex trafficking charge

February 8, 2018

ROCK SPRINGS, Wyo. (AP) — A 63-year-old man has been arrested in Wyoming and charged with sex trafficking.

Federal court records say David Peter Vier, a former Everett, Washington, firefighter, is charged with a single count of transportation of minors with intent to engage in criminal sexual activity.

KTWO-AM reports Vier made his initial appearance in U.S. District Court in Cheyenne on Wednesday. U.S. Magistrate Judge Kelly Rankin ordered Vier held without bond.

Sweetwater County Sheriff’s deputies arrested Vier on Jan. 20 after receiving a report about two girls hiding from a man at a hotel.

Police say they found two female juveniles -- ages 12 and 14 -- with Vier. The girls were placed in protective custody.

It wasn’t immediately known whether Vier had an attorney.
