3 women accused of running prostitution business at Roseville apartment

Three women have been arrested, accused of running a prostitution business out of a Roseville apartment.

Detectives with the Roseville Police Department’s crime suppression unit received a tip regarding suspicious activity at an apartment in the 700 block of Gibson Drive.

A number of men were seen visiting the apartment for short periods over the past few months and sometimes mistakenly knocked on doors of neighboring apartments, according to the department’s Facebook post. Detectives found numerous related ads for sexual services on a prostitution advertising website.

On Sept. 14, detectives conducted an undercover operation at the apartment and arrested three female residents.

Wisa Khutchon, 39, was arrested on suspicion of prostitution and “keeping a house of ill fame.” Junjira Muangnart, 52, was arrested on suspicion of pimping and pandering, and Bunyaporn Kumpo, 40, was arrested on suspicion of keeping a house of ill fame, according to police. All were booked into Placer County Jail.

Detectives are continuing the investigation to determine whether other people were financially benefiting from the alleged prostitution.

Booking photos of the three women have not been released because of the ongoing investigation, police said.
