Loudoun County, Va.- A nearly 12-month long investigation into a suspected prostitution ring operating out of a residence in Sterling, Va., has led to two arrests and identified multiple adult females involved in the operation. 


Luis A. Bonilla-Hernandez, 32, of Sterling, and Eliazar Duran-Mota, 22, of Herndon, were both arrested July 6 and charged with two counts of felony receiving money from earnings of a female prostitute and two misdemeanor counts of using vehicles to promote prostitution. Duran-Mota was also charged with cruelty to animals after he was witnessed harming a dog during the course of the investigation.  

 

Detectives with the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office began the investigation in August 2017 after receiving reports of a suspected prostitution ring operating out of a residence in the 600 block of W. Nettle Tree Road. Search warrants were executed by members of the LCSO Special Victims Unit in coordination with the FBI Child Exploitation and Human Trafficking Task Force at the Sterling home on Friday and with the Fairfax County Police Department at an additional home on Framingham Court in Herndon. 


It was learned during the investigation that the adult females would travel from other states and meet with Bonilla-Hernandez and Duran-Mota in Maryland. The men would then take the women to different locations in the Loudoun County area. 

 

Both men were released from the Loudoun County Adult Detention Center by a Loudoun Magistrate on a $7,500 secured bond.
