Dunwoody Police officials Tuesday announced the latest series of arrests in a commercial sex organization investigation. Four of the suspects are northeast Georgia men, according to police.
The investigation began last fall when officers received an anonymous tip about the alleged organization.
"This tip led to a monthslong investigation, which resulted in the identification of two organizations, Atlanta Gold Club Escorts and Lipstick and Shoes Escorts," officers stated in a news release.
The 13 latest arrests involved suspects charged with misdemeanor pandering and felony violation of the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations or RICO Act.
Police identified the men from northeast Georgia as Matthew Key and David Wang, both of Cumming, Robert Blalock of Winder and Eugene Koh of Suwanee.
They're among the latest of dozens of suspects.
"Multiple arrests have been made of the owner/operators, the female defendants as well as the buyers of this organization. There is no disputing that this was a criminal enterprise," police said.
Two other men from northeast Georgia face the same charges in a series of arrests in the case announced in January.
They're identified as Daniel Atkinson of Suwanee and Rodney Woodard of Cumming.
In Tuesday's release, police said more arrests are expected.
