Darrick Bell, 50, was arrested Wednesday at the Econo Lodge in Monroe, where he was found with nearly $12,000 and suspected cocaine, federal authorities said.

...

Bell — who also goes by "Tone" and "Ghost" — allegedly vanished before law enforcement raided the motel on Jan. 12, 2017, to break up the operation.

The ring's alleged victims "confirmed widespread and ongoing prostitution and drug distribution from the Victory Inn," authorities told the Detroit Free Press. They told investigators that they were plied with Xanax, heroin, and cocaine, as well as forced to have sex with customers and hand over their profits.

"The women were allegedly exploited and abused by forcing them — through threats, coercion, and isolation — to work as commercial sex workers for the financial benefit of Bell and other defendants, while a broad range of illegal drugs were allegedly available in other parts of the motel," ICE said.
