FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (KNWA) — Four suspects were arrested in a Rogers prostitution case on Friday night, police say.
The Rogers Police Department said Christopher J. Haynes, 36, Corey W. Glenn, 42, Diana J. Hernandez, 25, and Savannah J. Schmid, 23, were all arrested in connection with the case.
On Thursday, the FBI said it learned from a source a minor was being worked as a prostitute at a Rogers home in the 400 block of East Necessary Road.
The FBI shared this information with the Rogers Police Department, and a search warrant was obtained for the home on Friday night.
Police searched the home and found a 17-year-old girl hiding in a closet under a blanket. She was identified as a runaway from Rogers, authorities said.
The Rogers Police Department said Schmid gave police a methamphetamine pipe from her bra. Authorities also said Haynes admitted to being involved in prostitution in the past, having run a massage parlor where girls worked.
In the home, FBI agents said they found cell phones, tablets, $4,000, six pills that were thought to be ecstasy, several small bags of suspected marijuana, a glass pipe with marijuana residue, prepaid cards and notes and ledgers that contained information related to prostitution.
An arrest report states the minor told police she was not forced to do prostitution and had used the home multiple times.
Below are the charges each suspect faces:
Schmid – Trafficking of persons and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Hernandez – Trafficking of persons, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of controlled substance.
Glenn – Trafficking of persons, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of a controlled substance.
Haynes – Trafficking of persons.
