Martinique law enforcement arrested Saint Lucian, French, Haitian, and Dominican Republic nationals after a months-long investigation into a pimping ring.

The Public Prosecutor’s office said six people were in custody Tuesday due to the investigation, which began in March this year.

The six appeared before a judge on Friday on charges of aggravated pimping, aiding individuals to stay illegally in Martinique, money laundering and violating drug laws.

Five of the six people charged were in pretrial detention.

” It appeared that individuals were bringing in young women from Dominica and Haiti to exploit their prostitution and make substantial profits estimated at 680,000 euros,” a brief Public Prosecutor’s office release stated on Saturday.

It gave no further details.

The prostitution network allegedly operated out of two buildings in Terres Sainville, Fort-de-France.
