A Cedar Rapids man has been accused of pimping and possession of a controlled substance following an April prostitution sting.

According to an Iowa City police complaint, Dwan Moore (a.k.a. Santana), 29, 1856 A. Ave. N.E. Apt. A, was allegedly involved in a joint prostitution sting on April 10.

At the time, an undercover officer responded to an adult-escort advertisement on the Internet. Moore arrived in his red Dodge Charger with the three females.

One of the females entered the hotel and was arrested after reportedly agreeing to a sex act for money. An amount of marijuana, several phones, and a laptop computer were recovered during a search of Moore’s vehicle, the complaint said.

The phones contained images and text communications to arrange sex acts for money. Moore’s computer contained files labeled by females’ names with information to be used in advertisements.

One of the females told police that Moore spoke of “hooking his girls,” he took half of her income from outgoing calls, agreed to provide her transportation and protection during calls, and threatened to leave her in Coralville if she didn’t complete the call where she was requested.

Pimping is a Class-D felony, punishable up to five years in prison with a maximum fine of up to $7,500.

Possession of a controlled substance is a serious misdemeanor, punishable up to one year in prison with a maximum fine of $1,875.
