Miami Busts

As reported in the Miami Herald:

Leah Harriss, Princess Thigpen and Kimberly Daniels allegedly lured the potential clients aboard and, along with Leighann Redding, offered sex for cash.

And Christine Morteh, 29, was their madame, police say.

These six tooled through South Beach in a massive limo bus last weekend in what police are calling a brothel-on-wheels.

Their enterprise came to a screeching halt at 3:15 Sunday morning, when they picked up the wrong fare — three undercover Miami Beach cops — within walking distance of the police station.

”It was very brazen,” said Detective Juan Sanchez, a Miami Beach police spokesman. “They were offering everything from lap dances to sex.”

The arrests were part of a city-wide crackdown on prostitution over the weekend that led to 78 arrests, including at least seven felonies, and helped recover a missing person.

The sweep also netted a large cache of evidence, including drugs, a firearm and money.

But the highest-profile bust was the bus. . .

No mention as to whether that missing person was missing by force or choice. And, of course, there’s never a mention of why a criminalized activity might be around additional criminalized activities, as if those felonies and firearms were only present because the prostitution existed and not because they would be out there even if the prostitution disappeared.

Also in USA Today, which is clearly the inferior of the two articles. Though that’s not to say that either article is respectable.

Edit: Mentioned on perezhilton.com, although I’m not sure what Charlie Sheen has to do with this case.

  1. Sorry, a whore bus is just a bad idea…anytime…anywhere. Clearly drugs just made them do stupid things and the cops couldn’t ignore it. If you want respect don’t act like a fool.
