Jacksonville, FL — Four of five women arrested in an undercover human trafficking investigation in Flagler County are from the Jacksonville area.
The undercover investigation happened on Nov. 19. Detectives met the women separately at undisclosed locations in Flagler County.
Once the suspects agreed to exchange money for sex acts, they were arrested.
According to the Flagler County Sheriff’s Office, the five suspects are:
Rainie Dennie Adams, 41 - St. Augustine
Danielle Kapiolani Ashley, 36 - St. Augustine
Michelle Rene Fiallos, 49 - Jacksonville
Tierra Tatyana Tonay Austin, 31 - Middleburg
Sherry Ann Bonin, 49 - Daytona Beach
Flagler County Sheriff Rick Staly thanked his detectives and said, “Human trafficking and prostitution can be thought of by some as a ‘victimless crime’ since it appears the two parties are consensual. However, the women are rarely in control of the funds they receive, human trafficking plays a large role, and these encounters are often accompanied by drug activity. We will not tolerate human trafficking or prostitution in Flagler County. So if you are thinking about soliciting sex and possibly participating in human trafficking in Flagler County - think again. We will find you and you will go to jail.”
