A pimp was arrested in an entrapment operation inside the evacuation center at the Joaquin Enriquez Sports Complex last Thursday night.

Police identified the pimp as Ismael Ho y Sali alias Ella of Sta. Catalina.

Two women were also rescued during the entrapment operation.

Policemen led by Insp. Federico Lindo and Insp. Izel Dua Maravilles staged the entrapment operation after receiving a report that Ho was behind a prostitution racket at the evacuation center.

The City Health Office had earlier received reports that some women in the evacuation center have been selling their flesh in desperate need for money. It was learned that pay-for-sex activities have been taking place in the evacuation center’s portalets and improvised bathrooms.

Police staged the entrapment operation after an undercover agent pretended as customer of two 19-year-old girls.

The police team along with the undercover agent proceeded to the evacuation center and met with Ho who was bringing along with him the two girls.

Moments later, police held Ho and rescued the girls.

Ho was detained while the rescued girls were turned over to the Visayan Forum for proper custody. – Dan Toribio Jr.
