CHERRY HILL An undercover operation at a Cherry Hill hotel led police to three prostitutes who authorities said were forced by a Trenton man using violence and threats to keep working.
Brian A. Moore, 44, has been charged with human trafficking and promotion of prostitution, police announced Thursday.
The investigation began this month as authorities scoured classified ads online and discovered salacious services offered locally, said Cherry Hill Detective Sgt. Rick Humes.
"There's some pretty explicit ads there," Humes said of one site that advertises adult services. Prostitution, he said, "is pretty widespread throughout New Jersey and other states. We monitor the ads for local addresses."
