A man who claimed to be a songwriter and was driving a stolen Maserati has been arrested in Las Vegas for sex trafficking along with two women who were hiding thousands of dollars in their vaginas.

The man and two women were arrested after an 18-year-old woman told security officers at The Palms hotel-casino that she was being forced to work as a prostitute.

According to police, the young woman met 25-year-old Darryle Alston at Fashion Show Mall on Feb. 7. The pair exchanged cell phone numbers and began texting.

Alston told the young woman that he had written numerous songs for famous rappers and was visiting Las Vegas. He convinced her to meet the following morning.

After picking her up at her home, the two drove in a white Maserati to the MGM Grand. The two had sex in his room. Afterwards, she asked Alston to take her home.

Alston continued to text her, pressuring her to go out with him again. He picked her up again later that day and took her to The Palms. The young woman and Alston had sex again. He then told her that he managed escorts on the Las Vegas Strip and tried to convince her to work for him by telling her how much money she was going to make.

The victim told Alston that she did not want to be a prostitute, but he would not listen. The two women who allegedly work for Alston also began pressuring her.

The young woman was then sent out to work the Strip with one of the other women. They met two males who paid them to have sex. The victim then asked the other woman to take her back to The Palms.

The next morning when she woke up, Alston asked her if she wanted to go to the gym with him and a woman she did not know. She said no and after he and the woman left, the victim left the room while the other two women were sleeping and made contact with a hotel security officer. A call was placed to Las Vegas police.

Police officers went to the room. Alston and the two women were placed under arrest.

A records check revealed that the Maserati was reported stolen in California. When Alston was asked about the car, he told police that someone had given it to him.

The trio was transported to Clark County Detention Center. During the pre-booking search, $4,000 was found in the bra of 18-year-old Zakeria Arrendondo. In addition, $7,661 was found inside a condom in Arrendondo's vagina and $16,000 was found inside of 18-year-old Nicole Judge's vagina. Both women denied that the money was theirs and claimed they did not know how it got there.

Alston has been charged with possession of a stolen vehicle and sex trafficking of an adult. Arrendondo and Judge were also charged with one count of sex trafficking.
