RPD Arrests Sex Trafficker for Second Time in a Year

Posted: Updated:

Detectives from the Regional Street Enforcement Team (SET) say that after a prostitution operation, one man has been arrested for pandering and sex trafficking.

Investigators say they had been targeting a 20-year-old female who had posted an advertisement on a web site for customers of prostitution. SET members say they suspected that she was being pimped by 39-year-old Roosevelt Vonner, who had been arrested for pandering on February 26th, 2013. When officers attempted to meet the woman, they found Vonner nearby talking to her on the phone in an attempt to identify a police sting. Both the woman and Vonner were arrested without incident.

Vonner has been charged with pandering, the woman was issued a citation and given the resources to help escape the prostitution lifestyle.

Vonner is scheduled for sentencing in mid-January for multiple felonies fro, his first pandering arrest. Officials say that after his first pimping arrest, the prostitute attempted to escape that lifestyle, and Vonner threatened her and her family with his vehicle and a firearm
