On 04/06/12, SPD detectives working on a tip from the victim’s family developed information that the 17 year old female victim was engaging in acts of prostitution and was staying at the Motel 6 located at 6848 E. Camelback Road. Three male subjects from California were stopped as they were leaving the Motel 6. It was learned that they had recently brought the victim and another adult female to Arizona to have them engage in prostitution.
Suspects Stallings and Harris were booked on multiple counts related to prostitution while suspect Sellers was booked on marijuana related charges. The 17 year old victim was held pending arrangements to turn her back over to her family as she was originally reported as a runaway out of California.
