Ten Men Charged with Running Brothel in Memphis

OCTOBER 24, 2006 - Posted at 7:52 a.m. CDT

 

MEMPHIS, TN - Ten men have been charged with running a prostitution ring targeting Memphis' Hispanic community.

Police say the men were rounded up in an October 13 raid of about six different homes and apartments by more than 150 officers from various agencies, including U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

The men face various charges including money laundering, harboring illegal aliens and enticing women to engage in prostitution.

The 15-count indictment claims the men distributed business cards to advertise and provided cell phone numbers for the brothels located in four areas of the city.  One of the locations was an apartment located near an elementary school.

The women are not covered by the indictment.
