Charges laid in teen prostitution ring
Two Metro Vancouver men face charges for allegedly luring two teenaged girls into prostitution.
Ridge Meadows RCMP Cpl. Alanna Dunlop says 22-year-old David May was arrested last Thursday.
He is charged with two counts of procuring and has been ordered to return to court in Port Coquitlam on March 17.
A warrant has been issued for the arrest of 18-year-old Nicolas Boscoe, who also uses the last name Van Diest.
The alleged luring, which police say involved promises of money to one of the victims, was uncovered by Surrey RCMP officers as they spoke with a young woman and the two accused while investigating a car crash in January.
Dunlop says that information led to the search of a Maple Ridge home and the discovery of key evidence that led to the charges.
