Sex ring: Couple arrested for alleged pimping
A twenty-something-year-old couple allegedly had a 36-year-old woman turning tricks for them in Abbington Crossing Apartments, according to an Albemarle police release. An anonymous caller tipped off police.
Pablo Castro, 28, and Sandra Morales, 22, have both been charged with one felony count for receiving money or other valuables for the purpose of unlawful sexual intercourse. He's being held on $10,000 bond; Morales has a $5,000 bond.
Gisela Martinez, 36, was charged with one count of prostitution, a misdemeanor, and released. She told police she was brought to the apartment in the 700 block of Lords Court from Washington to service men.
In June 2009, Albemarle police busted another prostitution ring on Commonwealth Drive that employed a woman from D.C.
"I don't know if it's coincidental," says Sergeant Darrell Byers.
