NORFOLK, Va. - Sex trafficking in Norfolk: that is what police charged Carlos Wyche with after a successfully completing a sting operation earlier this month.
Police believe “approximately 10 women” are now safe after an investigation into Wyche showed he was allegedly “trafficking” the women for “sex and money,” a search warrant reads.
According to police, Wyche was arrested at the Ramada Inn, located in the 500 block of N. Military Highway on July 14.
Court records show Wyche went to the Ramada Inn to pick up money he thought was earned by a woman he was allegedly pimping out. That is when police arrested him.
A search warrant indicated the women were making about “$2,000 a week,” and Wyche would keep all of it.
Online records show Wyche has a criminal history: including carrying a concealed weapon, possession of marijuana, use of a motor vehicle for prostitution and aiding in prostitution.
In the last 90 days, Norfolk police have made 38 arrests for prostitution, including three arrests at the Ramada Inn location.
Ramada Inn employees told News 3 that Wyche had never rented a room from them under his given name, but they wouldn't say whether or not they recognized him from the property.
Wyche is being held without bail and is expected back in court on August 30.
