Police in Columbus, Ohio say they have broken up a prostitution ring that operated out of a junkyard. According to Sgt. Richard Curry, Russell Coleman, 42, and his girlfriend Brenda Brush, 51, took calls for girls at the junkyard Coleman owns.
After the yard closed, the calls came into Coleman’s home. “This is the first time we’ve found anything like this inside a junkyard,” Curry said..” Most places will say it’s a massage parlor or adult entertainment.”
At least five prostitutes, some of whom waited at the junkyard until a customer called for them, were involved. They charged $150 per hour, $50 of which went to Coleman.
Police began investigating Coleman in January. They stepped up the investigation in June, when neighbors called to complain about the noise and traffic issuing from the junkyard.
