The Complainant, being duly sworn, makes complaint to the above-named Court and states that there is probable cause to believe that the
Defendant committed the following offense(s). The complainant states that the following facts establish PROBABLE CAUSE:
Complainant, Officer Bryan Kruelle of the St Louis Park Police Department, has investigated the facts and
circumstances of this offense and believes the following establishes probable cause:
On July 15, 2010, officers from the St. Louis Park Police Department spoke to a confidential informant who informed
them that he had been contacted numerous times by an individual identified as IAN SCOT LAURIE, Defendant
herein, who was seeking to have sex for money with a juvenile female. The Defendant had located the confidential
informant through a website where he runs an escort service. Over the past few months, the Defendant has repeatedly
contacted the CI asking him to find a juvenile female for him to have sex with. The CI initially told the Defendant
that he was not interested in pursuing this with him, but after repeated contact from the Defendant the CI agreed to
“play along.” At one point the CI offered to set the Defendant up with an 18-year-old female, but the Defendant
declined and told the CI that it should be a juvenile under 16-years-old.
On July 15th, 2010, the CI contacted the Defendant and told him that he had located a 15-year-old female for him to
have sex with and that the fee would be $185.00 for full sex service, but no anal penetration. The CI had not actually
located a 15-year-old female and immediately called the St. Louis Park Police Department after talking to the
On July 16, 2010, the Defendant contacted the CI to make arrangements to meet the juvenile female. During that
conversation, the Defendant indicated that the price of $185.00 might be a problem and the CI agreed to a price of
$100.00 solely for the Defendant to “do” the juvenile female.
Prior to the arranged time, an undercover, plain clothes officer arrived at the meeting location in order to pose as the
15-year-old female the Defendant had arranged to have sex with for money. At approximately 4:15 p.m. on July 16 th,
2010, the Defendant arrived at the meeting location and initially left because he wanted to wait for the CI to arrive.
When the Defendant came back a second time, the CI asked him if he was backing out of the arrangement because

she wasn’t cute enough. The Defendant replied “no sweetie, you’re perfect.” Defendant LAURIE then asked the
undercover officer if she was 15 and she replied that she was. The Defendant then left again and said he would return
in 10 minutes to see if the CI had arrived yet.
Prior to the Defendant returning, officers located him at his nearby office and placed him under arrest.
The Defendant is in custody.
