A Kettering couple has been indicted for allegedly operating a brothel and endangering children.
Beverle F. George and Justin H. Frazier, both 29 and of Fulton Avenue in Kettering, have been indicted by a Montgomery County grand jury for promoting prostitution (operate brothel); aggravated possession of drugs (two counts); endangering children (parent-misdemeanor); and drug paraphernalia.
George has an added count of possession of drugs.
The children living inside the home at the time were a 6-year-old boy and 4-year-old girl.
Officer John Jung said the investigation started a year ago, in October 2016 after a patrol officer was told about suspicious activity in and out of the house.
On Oct. 12, 2016, an undercover sting was conducted by the Tactical Crime Suppression Unit, made up of several departments. The couple was arrested at that time, but later released.
The duo is not in custody, and warrants have been issued for their arrest.
They have court arraignment dates set for Oct. 17.
