A 40-year-old London man faces criminal charges in the wake of a four-month police investigation into a tip they received about a man that had been transporting teenage girls to hotels and motels for the purpose of prostitution.
Police say he also gave them drugs.
The girls were believed to have been transported in a white van with the company name "Heaven's Best Carpet Cleaning".
Police say two 16-year-old girls were approached by the suspect with the offer to work as prostitutes.
Sean Leadston was arrested Jan. 7 and allegedly had in his possession a Taser gun, a hunting knife, and a small quantity of drugs.
He’s been charged with procuring a person under 18 years to provide sexual services for consideration, possession of a prohibited weapon, possession of a prohibited weapon in a motor vehicle.
He was also charged with possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking.
