Five people were recently taken into custody for allegedly operating an escort business in Arizona. Court documents indicate that the charges resulted from an investigation that began in 2013 and took months complete.
The investigation reportedly began on April 30, 2013. According to officers, one of the accused, a 40-year-old man, was allegedly using a limousine company as a cover for an escort agency. They claim that proceeds garnered through prostitution were financing the agency. Undercover detectives reportedly placed a number of calls to the escort agency between April 2013 and September 2014 in order to arrange deals.
