Man Arrested During Prostitution Sting Operation in Annapolis; Was Previously Arrested on Similar Charges in 2012

A 40 year old man was recently arrested on human trafficking and prostitution charges during a sting operation in Annapolis. 

The Annapolis Police Department received complaints about prostitution and human trafficking in the City of Annapolis.  The investigation revealed that females were driven to a specified location for the purpose of prostitution.  

On Thursday, April 23, members of the Annapolis Police Department Intel Unit, Drug Enforcement Unit, and FLEX Unit, working with the Maryland State Police, conducted an operation in reference to prostitution and human trafficking in the City of Annapolis. The operation led to the arrest of Miguel Jonathan Almonte, from the 3200 Block of Toledo Place in Prince George County. 

Detectives determined that Almonte arranged the criminal activity through the telephone.   Contact was made with Almonte to request a female for prostitution.  Arrangements were made and Almonte drove the female to the predetermined location in the 1000 block of Madison Street where Almonte was arrested.  

Almonte was charged with one count of prostitution in 2012 following an arrest by Laurel police officers. He was later issued a probation before judgement in that case, according to court records.
