In today’s world of ultra-convenience, practically any goods or services can be delivered directly to your home. That includes prostitution.
On June 11, Detective James K. Sheeran of the Town of Vienna Police Dept. noticed a suspicious vehicle bearing a temporary Maryland license plate parked in front of an apartment complex on Cedar Lane in Vienna. He noticed that there was a person in the driver’s seat. He returned later on a routine patrol to find the same vehicle parked with the driver still inside.
Court documents say that Sheeran interviewed the driver and “learned that the driver had transported a female” to the apartment complex “for the purpose of prostitution.”
Sheeran claims the driver told him that a cell phone was used to “receive calls requesting a prostitute and arrange delivery, as well as to make arrangements to provide payments to a third party who provided the driver with the cell phone, a vehicle and the female prostitutes.”
“It appears that this operation involves a distribution of cards and interested individuals simply call and request an appointment,” Vienna Police spokesman Bill Murray said. “The driver then brings the female to the pre- arranged location. The money is split between the driver and the female after the interaction. This seems to be typical of a current movement up and down the East Coast.”
E C, 29, of Perth Amboy, N. J. was charged with Prostitution. M B, 25, of Hyattsville, Md. was also arrested and charged with Receiving Money from a Prostitute’s Earnings. Police confiscated the cell phone as evidence and are actively continuing the investigation.
