Human-trafficking sting in Perrysburg arrests 6

A Toledo man suspected of forcing women into prostitution was one of six men arrested Thursday in a human-trafficking sting in Perrysburg.

Laron Gregory, 34, is charged with one count of promoting prostitution, a fourth-degree felony, during the bust at an undisclosed hotel on Fremont Pike, Wood County Sheriff Mark Wasylyshyn said.

Arrested for solicitation of a prostitute, a third-degree misdemeanor, were: James Tyrrell, 33, of Bowling Green; Carl Kelley, 44, of Whitehouse; Dennis Mahon, 54, of Toledo; and Michael Palmer, 37, of Ida, Mich. Mounir Boutros, 50, of Sylvania, was arrested for attempted solicitation, a fourth-degree misdemeanor.

Two women who also were present at the hotel were not arrested because officials believe they were there against their will, Sheriff Wasylyshyn said.

The Wood County Sheriff's Office, Perrysburg police, and the Ohio Attorney General's office all cooperated in the human-trafficking enforcement effort.

The Toledo area is one of the worst in the country for sex trafficking.

It's good that they got a few of these evil slavers.
Character still matters.  It always matters.

May 3, 2016 - the day the Republican party left ME.  I am now without a Party, and quite possibly without a country.  May God have mercy!

This is getting to close to home. Our children aren't safe from these kinds of monsters.

It's WAY too close to home!

I found out a few years ago that Toledo was one of the worst cities in the country for trafficking (it's a port city), and I freaked out.  Our daughter is working in anti-trafficking, and I know much more than I'd like to know about how evil the human condition is.

This is horrible............and just a relatively few miles away.

There's a show on ID (Investigation Discovery) channel right now about those two girls from Toledo who were forced into prosecution.
