The Volusia County Sheriff’s Office said Devin Rachelle Miller, 22, was pimping as many as 10 women a day out of her home at 8034 Blaine Circle in Deltona, including a 16-year-old runaway.
According to the Sheriff’s Office report, Miller ran a whorehouse, exchanging sex for money or drugs, and took a cut of the proceeds, even while a 2-year-old child was present.
On some days, according to authorities, when Miller didn't want to have sex with "dates" who wanted to pay to have sex with Miller or her prostitutes, Miller would rob them, or have bouncers rob them.
According to the Sheriff’s Office, the story started Dec. 10, when a cybertip came in to the Volusia County Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force.
On April 3, Devin Miller was arrested by the Sheriff’s Office and charged with five counts of procuring for a person under age 18 for prostitution, five counts of deriving support from the proceeds of prostitution, use of two-way communication device to commit a felony, and child neglect, petty theft, burglary of an unoccupied dwelling, and grand theft.
"We do anticipate additional arrests," Sheriff's Office spokesman Brandon Haught said.
Anyone with information that might be helpful to the Sheriff’s Office is encouraged to contact investigators at 386-254-1537.
