Four more “johns” were busted in an undercover prostitution sting operation by Conyers Police Tuesday.
The suspects responded to posts on websites placed by Conyers Police Officers posing as prostitutes offering their services in exchange for money.
When the suspects came to the motel room where they thought were meeting a prostitute, they were instead met with officers who immediately put them under arrest and charged them with pandering misdemeanor.
The “johns” were arrested and charges with:
Anrecus Bradley, 34, Oxford
Pandering, Possession of Marijuana (less than one ounce) and Possession of Crack Cocaine
Mario Moreno, 29, Lithonia
Pandering, Driving While Unlicensed
Ryan Alan Bunder, 32, Sharpsburg
Pandering, Possession of Marijuana (less than one ounce), Possession of MDMA (methamphetamine)
Richard Tomlinson, 22, Covington
Conyers police have been conducting the stings regularly for the past several weeks as part of the ongoing crackdown on prostitution activities.
Back in January during the city council retreat, city officials discussed their concerns on the increased prostitution activity and related crimes, such as rapes and robberies.
“It’s a matter of time before somebody gets shot or cut,” City Manager Tony Lucas said in January.
Conyers Police Chief Wilson outlined the CPD’s plan for increased stings to make prostitution customers fear that if they come to Conyers, “they’re not sure if they’re going to meet Bambi or Bob the policeman.”
