Dunwoody police said Friday they have busted a prostitution ring masquerading as high-end modeling outfits where clients paid $300 or more an hour.
Police have charged the owners and operators of Atlanta Fantasies and Ashley’s of Atlanta with human trafficking for sexual servitude, keeping a place of prostitution and racketeering.
Charged so far are Robert Tyler, 36 of Gainesville, and Donna Allen, 39 of LaGrange, according to Dunwoody Police Chief Billy Grogan.
Some 26 women — all adults — were identified as “victims” of the organization, in the lengthy investigation involving multiple law enforcement agencies, according to police.
Other details from police were scant. The business websites portray a series of sultry women who talk very little about modeling and more about pleasure, all for $300 or more an hour.
“You’ll enjoy your time while we do all that we can to protect your privacy,” Ashley’s of Atlanta promised on its website. “Our independent models are top rated and highly reviewed. Incredibly beautiful and unapologetically sexy ladies! You’ll be nothing but impressed with the level of class, poise, and allure….” according to the website.
“We believe you should be treated like a king and our goal is to do just that. Whether you need an escape from work, or life in general, our models will always be there to put you at ease,” the website continues.
Police ask anyone with information about the organizations to contact Det. Thompson at 678-382-6921 or at Andrew.email@example.com.
