On August 31, 2016 Schaumburg Police Special Operations Division made two arrests in a reverse prostitution operation. Police collaborated with the Department of Homeland Security Investigations to conduct this undercover reverse prostitution operation. The investigation resulted in two arrests at a hotel in Schaumburg.
Two males arrested at hotel:
Micheal Linzing, 55 yrs old, of Prospect Heights, was charged with 1 charge of Solicitation of a Sexual Act, a misdemeanor and was released on bond.
Fernando Fuentes, 29 yrs old, of Hillside, was charged with 1 charge of Solicitation of a Sexual Act and 1 charge of Possession of Cannabis. Both charges were a misdemeanor and he was released on bond.
Reverse prostitution isn’t as complicated as it sounds. On the streets it’s when a male solicits a female to pay the male for sex, or a female solicits the male — offering to pay the male for sex. In police terms, it is when police in a sting operation supply a would be sex provider and receive money from a John or would be client. In this case, police aren’t targeting prostitutes, they are targeting people — usually men — who buy sex.
Police used resources in human trafficking, intelligence gathering, surveillance and social media in an effort to reduce prostitution.
This operation was a part of the recently implemented Schaumburg Police Safe Hotel initiative. The program is a joint venture between the Village of Schaumburg, the police department and hotel management, focused toward promoting safe, professional establishments that attract visitors while deterring criminal activity.
