Two alleged sex trafficking clubs in Dunwoody were recently busted up by law enforcement, resulting in the arrest of more than 50 people, according to police.
“During the fall of 2016, an anonymous tip was received from a concerned resident about a commercial sex organization based in Dunwoody. This tip led to a months-long investigation, which resulted in the identification of two organizations, Atlanta Gold Club Escorts and Lipstick and Shoes Escorts,” according to a Jan. 18 press release from Dunwoody Police.
One of the alleged escort services was operating out of an apartment complex across the street from Dunwoody City Hall and the Police Department. The other alleged escort service was operating out of another Dunwoody apartment complex.
