Herndon Man Charged In Connection with Prostitution Ring Operating in Sterling Home

A Herndon man was arrested in connection with a suspected prostitution ring operating out of a Sterling home.

According to a release by the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Deputies office, Luis Bonilla-Hernandez, 32, of Sterling, and Eliazar Duran-Mota, 22, of Herndon, were charged on July 6 with two counts of felony receiving money from earnings of a female prostitute and two misdemeanor counts of using vehicles to promote prostitution.

The arrests came after a nearly yearlong investigation. Sheriff’s deputies received reports of a suspected prostitution ring operating in a home on the 600 block of W. Nettle Road in August 2017. Search warrants were obtained on Friday for the Sterling home and a home on Framingham Court in Herndon.

Local law enforcement officials believe adult females traveled from other states to meet Bonilla-Hernandez and Duran-Mota in Maryland. The men then took the women to different locations in Loudoun County, according to the release.

Both men were released from the Loudoun County Adult Detention Center on a $7,500 secured bond.

The investigation was conducted by the LCSO, the Fairfax County Police Department and the FBI’s child exploitation and human trafficking task force.
