Law enforcement officers arrested two Fresno men last week for sex trafficking two female minors in San Luis Obispo and other areas.

Javier Solis, 28, and Michael Anthony Andrade, 33, brought two female minors, ages 15 and 17, to San Luis Obispo and forced them to work as prostitutes and use illegal drugs, according to the San Luis Obispo Police Department.

In late October, San Luis Obispo police learned that one victim had escaped to safety in the Central Valley, but the other possibly remained in captivity in a San Luis Obispo motel. Officers searched the motel and rescued the woman but did not find the suspects.

San Luis Obispo officers then aided the Fresno Police Department and the FBI in a follow up investigation, which led to the arrests of Solis and Andarde in Fresno on December 3.

Solis and Andrade are believed to have used force and fear tactics to coerce the female victims into multiple acts of prostitution in San Luis Obispo and other areas. The suspects would then use the money collected from the prostitution to purchase narcotics and to support their lifestyles as pimps.

Federal prosecutors will indict Solis and Andrade in U.S. District Court in Fresno for sex trafficking minors through force, fraud or coercion.

The San Luis Obispo Police Department states that prostitution is often not a victimless crime and that it will not tolerate such behavior.

Looking at the photos of these two knuckleheads I think to myself…. Could you imagine your daughter saying… “Dad, This is my boyfriend Chuko and I’m pregnant”.

I guess the “conehead” look is popular in Fresno.

Typical FBI tactics, Allow the local law enforcement to conduct all the leg work (investigation) and step in at the last moment to file charges.


Reminds me of the joke:

Police, Sheriff and FBI were showing off the skills of their narcotic dogs. The police officer asked his dog to go out into the audience and find marijuana. The dog walked thru the crowd, located a baggie in a purse and returned to the officer, placing the baggie at his feet. The Sheriff asked his dog to find cocaine. His dog did the same thing, placing the cocaine at the Sheriff’s feet. The FBI told his dog to find illegal drugs and instead of going into the audience, the dog went to the two other officers and stole their drugs and headed out to hold a press conference. Oh, Wait… That may not have been a joke after all.
