Reverse prostitution sting nets 12 arrests

Written by  Monday, 09 June 2014 10:49

  A reverse prostitution sting conducted by the Statesboro-Bulloch Crime Suppression Team over a two day period last week resulted in 12 arrests.  The reverse sting was conducted with the cooperation of a local motel.


  The report said “As prostitution is now facilitated in many cases on the internet, investigators used a classified internet advertising website to arrange transactions.  The individuals who responded to the specified motel to complete the sexual transaction were then arrested.”


  The investigation was begun after Crime Suppression Team received complaints from the public and information from other law enforcement agencies. 


  In a news release Bulloch County Sheriff Lynn Anderson said “Prostitution brings with it other issues, such as drug activity, robberies, and the use of underage and sex trafficked women.  The reverse stings make the crime more dangerous for “Johns” to participate in and hopefully deters them from doing so.”


Arrested were:

  Brandon Chiang, 20 yoa, Derenne Avenue Savannah Ga, 1 ct pandering and 1 ct obstruction

  David Talbot, 43 yoa, Highway 23 Reidsville Ga, 1 ct pandering

  Charles Ford Jr, 38 yoa, Garfield Street Statesboro Ga, 1 ct pandering
