On July 1, 2011, Detectives from the Killeen Police Department’s Organized Crime Unit conducted an operation targeting internet prostitution. This was the second of two operations conducted in the last 2 months specifically targeting those who utilize such websites as Backpage, Craigslist, Redbook and others to ply their trade as prostitutes. Although they accept customers from any walk of life, they come from not only out of the area, but out of state specifically for the large amount of military personnel in this area. They have proven to be convicted felons or have had convictions/arrests for everything from prostitution to drug offenses to Aggravated Felonies. This type of offense is known to be related to human trafficking and also involve juveniles (those under 17 years of age) forced or coerced into the prostitution trade.

The previous operation netted 15 arrests over two days and today’s operation netted 9 arrests. The Killeen Police Department’s Organized Crime Unit will continue to aggressively pursue this type of offense by targeting both the prostitutes as well as the customers who contact them for their services.

The following is a list of the arrested persons and their corresponding offense(s).

Volinski, Roslyn Renee - Prostitution 1st Offense

Bean, Lauren Lavelle - Prostitution 2nd Offense

Carley, Lashay Monique - Prostitution 1st Offense

Jackson, Delta Demil - Promotion of Prostitution
