Five Men Charged After Prostitution Bust
Rochester, MN (KROC AM News) - The Rochester Police Department’s vice unit was busy one day in January.
A bogus ad was placed on the backpage.com website on January 13 that was designed to attract prostitution customers - and it worked. Within a matter of a few hours, five men had responded and all are now facing prostitution-related charges.
Criminal complaints were filed Thursday by the Olmsted County Attorney’s Office against:
Brandon Burbank, 35, Rochester
Nathan Geilow, 27, Dover
Marcus Kubat, 44, Owatonna
Jon Hansen, 47, Decorah, Iowa
Francisco Javier Moreno-Castillo, 29, Rochester
The five have been ordered to court for arraignment next month.
