Apparently, pecans weren't the only nuts hanging in the Richmond, Texas suburb of Pecan Grove.
Authorities based both there and here in Houston say that 37-year-old Robin Jeanette Jordan, a.k.a. "Lianna," has been involved in an Internet-based prostitution ring out of a home there for several months at least.
Cops from both the Fort Bend County Narcotics Task Force and HPD's Vice Division collaborated on an undercover sting. After the March 11 raid, they claim to have seized reams of evidence, including video surveillance footage of people, um, coming and going (and coming again, we imagine), pricing and service information from the organization's Web site, stacks of homemade digital porn, the much-dreaded "little black book" of customer contact information, and, as Fort Bend Now puts it, "other contraband indicative to operating a prostitution organization." (Like what, fur coats and thigh-high white leather boots?)
Jane Long Drive in Pecan Grove is one of the last places you'd expect to find a McMansion of Ill Repute. Spacious two-story homes line the gently curved streets, and the neighborhood association's Web site touts the upcoming Easter egg hunt and annual Boy Scout garage sale.
Nevertheless, cops say known felons cavorted there with Jordan and other ladies of the night.
They claim to have video evidence that a recently convicted money-laundering felon liked to kick it there with the girls. One of Jordan's associates is described as "presently on bond pending felony drug related charges in Fort Bend County." A twice-convicted prostitute was also scooped up during the raid, but not charged with a crime in this case.
According to Harris County court records, Jordan negotiated anal sex for a fee with an undercover cop. Jordan's only prior conviction -- credit/debit card abuse -- came in 2003. She is charged with prostitution in this case and is being held on $5000 bond.
