operation preyed on dozens of girls and young women from Chicago, Indiana and Wisconsin. It was the culmination of 18-month undercover operation called "Operation Little Girl Lost." The pimp gang was described as “vicious predators” who sought girls and young women to work for them on the L and local stores.
Cook County State's Attorney Anita Alvarez said: “Gang members are not just selling drugs any longer. They’re selling children and young women for sex right here in our own backyard. I hardly think that there’s an 11 or 12-year-old girl out there who is prostituting herself. Obviously she is being put on the street and sold and someone’s making money off of this.”Charged are: Sahura “Hollywood” Allen, 26; Jaymes Hart, 25; Travis Creekmore, 31; and his nephew, Jerrell Creekmore, 21. Others awaiting bond hearings include Arthur Deshazor, 29; Vincent “Snake” Davis, 39; Norman Hicks, 37; and Lenaris “Lil Daddy” Brown, 25. Deshazor and Davis are cousins, court documents state. Katrina “Lollypop” Zaia, 24, also of Evergreen Park, was described as the “recruiter, manager, overseer” of the operation by prosecutors. MORE IN THE CHICAGO SUN-TIMES
