DE-USA: Police raids nab 13 suspects in prostitution ring

Prostitution raids net 13 suspects
The News Journal

A Prices Corner-area father and son accused of running brothels in Delaware and bringing women from New York to work in them have been arrested following weekend raids in which police and federal agents charged five women with selling sex and four men with paying for it.

The raids, at homes in Seaford and near Frankford and Prices Corner, all occurred at 4 p.m. Sunday, as did a search of a home in Hammonton, N.J., said state police spokesman Cpl. Jeff Oldham.

At one of the homes, in the 1600 block of Newport Gap Pike near Prices Corner, police arrested Moises Dominguez Cruz, 53, and his son, Juan C. Dominguez Piedra, 26. Oldham said the men are accused of bringing the women to a rendezvous point in Wilmington and of running brothels. Dominguez Cruz is also accused of making fake identification documents and giving a false name to police and court when he was stopped for a traffic violation.

Oldham said the two were found counting money near a safe when they were taken into custody. Police seized $9,374, along with envelopes with the alleged prostitutes' names and what the women were owed.

People who live near the Newport Gap Pike home, which is in a semi-residential area, said they were unaware that an alleged prostitution ring was based in their neighborhood.
Most people do not have a clue such an operation may exist in their very own neighborhood.

Others choose to ignore it.
