Police shut down illegal brothel in Kingston

ACT Policing, with the assistance of Australian Border Force (ABF), executed a search warrant at an apartment complex in Kingston yesterday morning (Thursday, 29 November 2018).

As a result of the warrant, a 65-year-old woman has been arrested and charged with operating a commercial brothel in a location other than a prescribed location, and failing to register a commercial brothel.

She was granted bail and will appear in the ACT Magistrates Court at a later date.

Two other women are currently subject to ABF enquiries regarding their immigration status.

Detective Superintendent Scott Moller said this successful operation was the result of information received from the public.

“The result of this operation demonstrates how important information from the public can be,” Detective Superintendent Moller said.
