AKRON, Ohio (WJW) — Authorities introduced Friday that an Akron hotel clerk was billed with promoting prostitution pursuing a human trafficking operation.

Thursday’s operation, done by the Summit County Human Trafficking Job Force, Ohio Lawyer Common Dave Yost and Summit County Sheriff Kandy Fatheree, led to the arrest of Cody Allen Vanderwyst, 28, of Akron, Yost stated in a information launch.

Yost reported, during the procedure, 5 victims of human trafficking had been referred to social support organizations and presented medial aid.

“This hotel clerk must have imagined he had the best set up to site visitors girls. But offering this sort of home ‘service’ will get you an upgraded room – upgraded stability, that is, in jail. Terrific operate by Sheriff Fatheree and our companions on this process force as we battle towards ending human trafficking in Ohio,” Yost explained in the release.

Just one other individual was billed with soliciting.
