DC Cop Being Investigated for Allegedly Running Prostitution Ring; Missing 16-Year-Old Girl Found in His Apartment

Search warrant alleging trafficking of a minor and production of child pornography executed but no charges filed or arrest made


Authorities are investigating whether a D.C. police officer was running a prostitution ring out of his Southeast home after a missing teenage girl was found there.

The 16-year-old girl told investigators she had met the officer two weeks earlier and that during that time he put her in contact with a man who would pay her $80 for sex, according to a search warrant affidavit filed in federal court. She said she also met six other women at the officer's apartment who told the girl they made money prostituting themselves for him.
