Four ad­di­tional ar­rests have been made in a high­end pros­ti­tu­tion st­ing that brought down a Gwin­nett County pros­e­cu­tor and 55 other peo­ple, Dun­woody po­lice said Fri­day.

Jar­rett Franklin, An­thony Ki­nard, James Martin and Kal­barga Subash were charged with pan­der­ing and vi­o­la­tion of Ge­or­gia’s felony rack­e­teer­ing statute, Dun­woody po­lice Sgt. Aaron Belt said in a state­ment. Franklin, Ki­nard and Martin are from Al­pharetta. Subash is from Roswell.

“In­ves­ti­ga­tors have iden­ti­fied nu­mer­ous other in­di­vid­u­als in­volved in this crim­i­nal or­ga­ni­za­tion and ad­di­tional ar­rests are forth­com­ing,” Belt said.

Their ar­rests are the most re­cent in a months-long in­ves­ti­ga­tion into a high­end es­cort ser­vice dubbed “Gold Club” that was op­er­at­ing out of an apart­ment across the street from the Dun­woody po­lice sta­tion. A sec­ond es­cort ser­vice known as “Lip­stick and Shoes” was al­legedly housed in an­other Dun­woody apart­ment com­plex and two apart­ment com­plexes in Atlanta, po­lice said. Gwin­nett As­sis­tant District At­tor­ney Christo­pher Quinn was ar­rested in Jan­uary after au­thor­i­ties said they caught him on cam­era hav­ing sex with a pros­ti­tute.
