April 22, 2010

Eight people were arrested after an investigation into a prostitution operation at a hotel, Costa Mesa police said Thursday.

After complaints from employees at the Vagabond Inn, 3205 Harbor Blvd., regarding possible prostitution, police investigated, said Lt. Bryan Glass.

That investigation led police to two rooms in the hotel, where after talking with the people inside, eight of them were arrested for various violations related to prostitution.

Among the arrestees were Meriam Valenzuela, 29, of Santa Ana, and Carlos Juan Camacho, 19, of Santa Ana, both of whom were booked on suspicion of pimping and conspiracy to commit a crime.
