Anne Arundel County police have charged a 19-year-old California woman with prostitution, operating a prostitution ring and human trafficking.
Shkoyia Michelle Lomack of Sacramento was arrested Tuesday evening and remains in custody with a June 19 trial date.
Officers received an anonymous tip that a woman was using hotels in the Linthicum area to house prostitutes and profit from their activities. Investigators say Lomack had used an Internet advertisement as a front for the prostitution ring that involved other women from California. Police declined to release the hotels involved in the operation.
