Slidell: Prostitution, Kidnapping & Human Trafficking Ring Busted

Law enforcement in Slidell, Louisiana believe they uncovered a prostitution operation while they were investigating a separate home invasion case.

Deputies from St. Tammany Parish Sheriff's Office received a report about a home invasion and attempted kidnapping incident on April 17th, according to WWLTV.

When they arrived on the scene the attempted kidnapping victim informed officers that three men sitting in a car outside the residence walked inside the home with a gun before trying to force her into their car.

Investigators found a firearm and cocaine inside their vehicle.

That's when they arrested Enrique Pacheco-Ayuso, 27, Juan Zavala, 24, and Josadac Gomez-Bonilla, on felony attempted kidnapping, possession of an illegal narcotic and illegal possession of a firearm.

Deputies then discovered the victim, Tammy Faye, 45, was believed to be involved in a prostitution operation with the three men.

She was arrested on charges of human trafficking and pimping, Pacheco-Ayuso was also charged.

The St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s Office is working with the Department of Homeland Security on this investigation, which suggests the three male suspects are here illegally.
