Seven people were arrested after Dunwoody police busted a high-end escort service conducted in an apartment across the street from the police station.
After months of surveillance, police raided the business off Perimeter Center East on Dec. 29, according to Channel 2 Action News.
Sam Crenshaw and George Moore face charges related to running a prostitution business and trafficking for the purpose of sexual servitude, according to DeKalb County jail records.
Laura Davis, Esther Park, Brittany Johnson and Miranda Ogle all face prostitution charges in connection with the alleged escort service.
Attorney Zach Meeks, who represents Moore, told Channel 2 his client will be exonerated when he has his day in court. An attorney for Ogle and Park said the same for his clients.
Scott Phillips faces pandering, racketeering and drug possession charges. He was released on bond with the condition to enroll in a substance abuse recovery center, according to jail records.
Phillips’ father told Channel 2 his son made some bad choices but had never been in trouble before and was simply in the wrong place at the wrong time.
Neighbors and residents of the Savannah at Park Place apartments told the television station they were shocked and surprised.
Police said further charges may be forthcoming.
