Victims:

What:
Detectives have arrested three suspects for procuring minors for prostitution.

Where:
The three suspects were arrested at the Knights Inn 2595 54th Avenue North, St. Petersburg.

When:
The three suspects were arrested on Sunday, May 12, 2013.

How/Why:
On Sunday, May 12, 2013, patrol deputies attempted to serve a warrant on a subject at the Knights Inn in unincorporated St. Petersburg. In an attempt to locate the wanted subject, deputies knocked at the door of one of the hotel rooms. The suspect they were seeking was not present in the room. Deputies instead located two female juveniles in the room along with an adult male -later identified as 21-year-old Donell Jenkins.  Deputies also noticed marijuana in plain view.

The deputy summoned Crimes Against Children detectives for further investigation. The investigation revealed that the female victims were engaging in prostitution at the direction of Jenkins and two other suspects identified as 28-year-old Stacy Jo Bumgarner, and 30-year-old Antron Smith. According to investigators, the victims had been in the company of the three suspects for approximately 5 to 7 days.

According to detectives, Jenkins provided security to the victims and was instructed by Smith to recruit girls for the purposes of prostitution. Bumgarner assisted with the wording/posting of on-line advertisements posted on an on-line classifieds website. She further assisted by instructing the victims on how much to charge and what procedures to use when the clients arrived. Smith assisted by providing  funds to cover the room rental and fees for posting the on-line ads knowing what the funds were being used for. Jenkins would stay in the room with the two female victims while Bumgarner and Smith shared a separate room nearby.

Jenkins, Bumgarner and Smith were taken into custody and transported to the Pinellas County Jail without incident.

Jenkins has been charged with 1 count Procuring a Minor for Prostitution, 1 count Deriving Support From the Proceeds of Prostitution, 1 count Renting Space to be used for Lewdness, Assignation or Prostitution, 1 count Violation of Probation, 1 count of Contributing to Delinquency of a Minor and 1 count Possession of Marijuana.

Bumgarner has been charged with 1 count Procuring a Minor for Prostitution, 1 count Deriving Support From the Proceeds of Prostitution and 1 count Renting Space to be used for Lewdness, Assignation or Prostitution.

Smith has been charged with 1 count Procuring a Minor for Prostitution, 1 count Deriving Support From the Proceeds of Prostitution, 1 count Renting Space to be used for Lewdness, Assignation or Prostitution and 4 counts Violation of Probation.

The investigation continues.
