BURBANK — Police detectives arrested two Northern California women on Thursday, who they suspect are part of an Internet prostitution ring that used a Burbank hotel in their operation.
Fremont resident Jessica Gonzales and Fairfield resident Raeanna Valencia, who are both 19, were arrested following an investigation into online advertisements offering escort and massage services throughout the San Fernando Valley, including Burbank, said Burbank Police Sgt. Matthew Ferguson.
Posing as interested customers, detectives arranged to meet with the suspects at a hotel near the airport, he said.
"The Vice and Narcotics Bureau conducted an investigation and made contact with the suspects, who then suggested they meet at a local Burbank hotel," he said. "And the investigation continued with the meeting actually occurring and the two individuals subsequently being arrested for prostitution."
