Man arrested in prostitution case
BISMARCK - As part of a prostitution investigation, federal authorities took a man with residences in California and North Dakota into custody Monday.
Loc Bao Tran, 32, is facing eight federal charges involving prostitution, racketeering and extortion.
Details about the allegations were not available on the federal court records website, however a 2013 case against Tran alleged that Tran and another person ran a business called “The Mann’s Club” that provided sex to customers in exchange for money.
