A Las Vegas, Nev., man is in jail on a string of human trafficking-relatedcharges, all felonies.



At 9:06 a.m., Boise Police responded to a call to a hotel on the 2600 block of West Airport Way. That's where the caller reported that coerced prostitution was taking place. After obtaining a search warrant to search rooms thought to be connected with the case, officers found evidence of prostitution and that a suspect had used threats and coercion against the women involved.



Roderich Aaron, 32, of Las Vegas, Nev., has been arrested and charged with felony counts of human trafficking, trafficking prostitution, procurement of prostitution and detention for prostitution.  



Sgt. Mark Barnett of the Boise Police Criminal Investigation Division said he believes the women to be victims of Roderich, and Boise Police have offered support services and safe shelter to the women involved.



"We know that it is not uncommon for people to be forced, manipulated and coerced into life as a prostitute. Instead of criminals, these people may actually be victims of crimes, as we believe they are in this case," said Barnett.



"If people are aware of this activity occurring, it's important they report it to law enforcement. There are many reasons why the victims themselves are often not able to come forward," he said.



Aaron was arraigned at the Ada County Courthouse Thursday afternoon and was ordered held on a $1 million bond. His preliminary hearing is set for Thursday, July 10.
