Detectives from the FCPD Street Crimes Unit received information regarding a tip in December 2015 that there was an alleged prostitution ring operating in the Reston area.

After a comprehensive investigation, detectives learned than an unknown person was using the alias of “Ron Burgundy” and operating a “sex club” out of an apartment on Northgate Square in Reston.

Ron Burgundy is the name of actor Will Farrell’s character in the Anchorman movies.

Police said “Ron Burgundy” was advertising online and charging a fee to engage in various sexual acts with a prostitute.

The FCPD Street Crimes Unit executed a search warrant at 1411 Northgate Square on Monday. Police arrested Michael Tillman, 33 (who used the Ron Burgundy name) and charged him with pandering and maintaining a bawdy house.

Another person in the home, Jill Faustin, 26, was also arrested and charged with prostitution and frequenting a bawdy house.
