LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department says it arrested 38-year-old Anthony Posey on several charges, including kidnapping of a minor and sex trafficking of a child under 18.
This stems from a traffic stop on the night of Dec. 24 when a police officer saw a pickup truck near Charleston and Nellis Boulevards with a suspended registration.
Police say the driver, Posey, had a fictitious New Jersey license and was arrested on numerous misdemeanor offenses.
The passenger was a minor and police say they believed she was involved in prostitution.
Police say the investigation revealed the two met on Instagram and over the course of conversation allegedly entered into a prostitution arrangement.
The police report says Posey admitted to meeting the minor over the social media app but says he thought she was at least 21 years old.
According to Clark County records, Posey is set to appear in court on Jan. 7.
