Trafficking fears after London, Windsor job ads turn out to be for sex work
LONDON, ONT -- A 46-year-old London man has been arrested after an investigation into job postings in London and Windsor found them to be for escort work.
The postings were made on LeoList and were seeking woman between 18 and 35 years of age promising earnings of up to $1,200 a day.
Through text conversations the suspect who posted the ad revealed the job was for escort work.
“We are concerned that there may be others who responded to these postings and have ended up involved in doing sex work for a third party as a result,” said Det. Cam Halliday of the London Police Service's Human Trafficking Unit in a release.
A London man has been charged with one count of procuring. He was also arrested on five outstanding warrants from across the country.
London police have chosen to reveal the man’s name on their website.
Police believe there may be more victims and are asking anyone with information to come forward.
