BREAKING: Sheepshead Bay Prostitution Ring Busted, 17 Indicted

(UPDATED: Sheepshead Bay Prostitution Ring Busted; Family-Run Service Earned $7 Million)

A Sheepshead Bay-based prostitution and drug ring that brought in more than $2 million annually has been busted, sparking the indictment of 17 individuals and five corporations.

Brooklyn District Attorney Charles Hynes unveiled the 144-count indictment of the high-priced “escort service” at a press conference this morning. The individuals involved are charged with operating several websites that provided sex services to clients, and also for selling cocaine and other controlled substances.

With the criminal complaint still under wraps, details about the ring and the individuals are still vague, but prosecutors allege that clients often spent more than $10,000 a night.

More information will be posted as it becomes available.
