ALBERTVILLE, AL (WAFF) - A prostitution bust in an Albertville mobile home park sent three people to jail early Wednesday afternoon.

Albertville police officials said they got several calls from residents saying prostitution was occuring in their neighborhood off Mathis Mill Road.

An undercover agent was sent to Trailer 8 at the Mathis Mill Mobile Home Park about 1 p.m. Once the tips were confirmed, officers began making arrests.

Police took Carlos Adilla Velasquez, 30, and Henry Vustillo Patheco, 24, into custody. Investigators said they believe the two men were organizing the sale and exchanging the money for sex. They are being charged with promoting prostitution.

Officers also arrested Rosa E. Dotel Sena, 32, on prostitution charges.

Albertville Police Chief Benny Womack said it's this is the second time in the last six months they've made prostitution arrests at the same trailer.

"We're certainly going to keep our eyes open a little more to this area right here," Womack said. "This kind of activity, we're not going to tolerate it in our city. We just can't!"

Police officials said only one suspect had identification on them. Officers are also investigating if the three suspects are in the country illegally.
