Immigration agents are involved but Cpl. Bruce Harris of the Delaware State Police said it doesn’t appear human trafficking was involved.
Police arrested Antonio Flores, 23, Maria D. Diaz-Flores, 19, and Griselda Vasquez-Ortega, 25, all of Georgetown.
Delaware State Police arrested two women and a man Dec. 28 in connection with a Georgetown prostitution house they had been investigating for a month.
Georgetown Police first were called regarding a traffic crash in the Georgetown Wal-Mart parking lot, said Cpl. Bruce Harris of the Delaware State Police. Police learned a man was pushing a shopping cart with a child inside when a car backed into them and then fled, Harris said. Both sustained scrapes and the child was treated and released from Nanticoke Hospital.
After releasing a description of the car, he said police found it parked at a residence in the 18000 block of DuPont Highway — a home police had been investigating for the past month in connection with prostitution.
Harris said the two women allegedly worked in the house and the man was the “business manager.”
He was unsure if the house has been closed or the status of the residents’ citizenship.
Immigration agents are involved but Harris said “it doesn’t appear there was human trafficking going on.”
Police arrested Antonio Flores, 23, Maria D. Diaz-Flores, 19, and Griselda Vasquez-Ortega, 25, all of Georgetown. They all were charged with second-degree conspiracy and the women also with prostitution and hindering prosecution.

Flores additionally faces possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, promoting second-degree prostitution, two counts of first-degree reckless endangering, possession of cocaine, possession of drug paraphernalia, driving under the influence, leaving the scene of a property collision accident, failure to have required insurance and driving without a valid license. He was committed to Sussex Correctional Institution in default of $53,000 cash bail.
