A Perkiomen Township man was charged with more than 130 prostitution-related offenses after being arrested after being arrested in June in Lansdale for promoting prostitution.
Florencio Perez Martinez, 45, of Gravel Pike, is facing charges including owning a prostitution business, promoting unlawful activity, procuring prostitutes for patrons, transporting prostitutes and more, according to The Reporter.
As previously reported on Patch, Martinez allegedly was operating an “illegal sex trade” operation, and was observed driving women around Montgomery and surrounding counties in the evening, night and early-morning hours to allegedly provide sex for money.
According to police, Martinez allegedly procured a new woman each week for his operation; a search of Martinez’s home found condoms, U.S. currency and calendar and planner books with notes that allegedly detailed his sex-trade operation.
Martinez was arrested on the 800 bock of Wedgewood Drive in Lansdale, after a woman he brought to the home entered the residence and returned to Martinez’s car shortly thereafter.
