On December 11 and December 12, 2023, investigators with the Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office, along with multiple other officers who comprise the Human Trafficking Rescue Alliance (HTRA), conducted a proactive undercover buyer operation. The goal of the operation was to identify and arrest sex buyers in order to reduce the demand for victimized sex workers. The operation was conducted at a predetermined location in Missouri City, Fort Bend County, Texas, where members of the Taskforce posed as prostitutes and posted advertisements on websites known for prostitution. When potential “Johns” solicited sex acts for money, the suspects were apprehended at the meeting location. The following 15 suspects were arrested for Solicitation of Prostitution: Jameel Aburamadan, 20; Devin Roy, 38; Lance Parnell, 54; Matthew Wray, 33; Donovan Bankett, 29; Troy Flanagan, 35; Shahzaib Ali, 25; Alexis Garcia-Almaraz, 27; Samuel Omolade, 31; Omer Karar, 33; Edward Pickett, 50; Parker Moss, 27; Errol Lindo, 60; Steven Haley, 30; and James Shillingburg, 43.
