Woman ran brothel out of Anaheim motel, prosecutors say

Police have arrested an 41-year-old Anaheim woman on suspicion of operating a brothel in one the city's motels.

Ramona Judith Mora Garcia is accused of enlisting a 33-year-old woman and a 38-year-old woman as prostitutes in late 2013 and early 2014.

The Anaheim Police Department contacted her through a sexually suggestive ad Garcia had placed in a magazine, according to the Orange County district attorney's office.

Authorities said Garcia would place such ads, arrange for customers to meet with the two women for sex and then demand half the money they were paid.

Garcia faces two felony counts each of pimping and pandering. She could face up to seven years and four months in prison if convicted.

She is expected to be arraigned Friday at Central Jail in Santa Ana. The Orange County district attorney's  office's human trafficking unit will prosecute the case and will request that she be held in lieu of $100,000 bail.
