Two Arrested on Prostitution Charges
Families usually go to a park for recreation and enjoyment, and while most parks are crime free, some are everything but, like this park in Harlingen. Police officers have responded to several calls ranging from robbery all the way to prostitution.
Just this past weekend, officers arrested this pair, 25-year-old, Daniel Ambriz, and 46-year-old, Diana De Leon, on prostitution charges.
Police say Ambriz picked De Leon up at the intersection of D Street and West Van Buren at around 2 Saturday morning. The couple drove to an apartment complex on North First Street but was pulled over by police who had the suspicion that the couple had the intention to have sex for money. They were both arrested and charged with prostitution and drug possession after police found marijuana inside Ambriz's vehicle.
Various citizens have alerted authorities that prostitution is spiking up in this particular park. That’s why police are now patrolling the area more frequently in hoping to put a stop to this crime.
