North Carolina teen caught hiding in attic, charged with pimping a teenage prostitute
A North Carolina teen has been tracked to the attic in Wilmington where he was hiding and arrested on Friday on suspicion of promoting prostitution, Port City Daily reports.
After being pulled from the attic, the nineteen-year-old Dwayne Poole Jackson was placed in jail in Pender County in Burgaw, North Carolina, and charged with numerous felonies, including human trafficking, advancing prostitution, and profiting from prostitution.
Jackson is being held under a $1 million–secured bond.The North Carolina teen was arrested in the attic thanks to a joint investigation between regional law enforcement agencies that began looking into his prositution-promoting efforts in late June.The statement went on to say that the teen’s arrest in the attic for advancing prostitution was done thanks to “the assistance of law enforcement personnel with the Wilmington [North Carolina] Police Department and the New Hanover County Sheriff’s Office Joint Street Crime Unit. Dwayne Jackson was found hiding in an attic at a residence in Wilmington.”
According to WWAY 3 ABC, the North Carolina teen who hid in the attic is believed to have recruited, enticed, and harbored an 18-year-old woman and turned her into a sex slave.The investigation into Jackson’s alleged crimes is ongoing.
So Jackson may get slapped with additional charges.According to North Carolina investigators, Jackson used the website to orchestrate a number of rendezvous between the teenage call girl and a number of men seeking her services as a prostitute.
In keeping with his alleged position of a pimp, Jackson demanded that the sex slave pull in a certain amount of cash for each of the sexual encounters.
This sexual servitude, investigators say, went on throughout much of June.
According to NBC 12 On Your Side, North Carolina authorities have asked the public to report if they have any additional information that would be helpful for the investigation of the attic-hiding teenager who is believed to have promoted prostitution.
