OLD ORCHARD BEACH, Maine - Police in Maine say a man called them to complain a prostitute hadn't given him his money's worth — so they arrested him.

Police say New Hampshire resident Scott Pipher was arrested this week. The 34-year-old is charged with engaging a prostitute.

New Hampshire's The Portsmouth Herald newspaper ( http://bit.ly/TFV8Ox) reported Wednesday the police investigation started in the spring.

Old Orchard Beach, Maine, police say Pipher called them March 25 to complain a woman he'd hired "shorted him by 10 minutes."

Police say their investigation also led to the arrests of two women believed to be prostitutes contacted by Pipher through a website.

Pipher is scheduled to be arraigned in Maine District Court in Biddeford next week. Telephone calls to numbers listed for him in Portsmouth, N.H., have gone unanswered.
