Two Women Arrested and Charged With Sex Trafficking; Additional Victims a Concern

For Immediate Release: Tuesday, December 13, 2022

Gaithersburg, MD - Detectives from the Montgomery County Department of Police Vice and Intelligence Unit have arrested and charged two women with multiple counts of sex trafficking and prostitution.


48-year-old Ana Delia Solano of Silver Spring, and 49-year-old Ana Cristina Bermudez of Riverdale, are accused of running an unlicensed spa in the 9500 block of Georgia Avenue, where the two women advertised massage services on Craigslist, with sexually explicit photos of women.


During the five-month investigation, detectives observed male clients entering and leaving the “spa” and learned that the clients were offered extra services with prices based on the sexual service provided.


Solano and Bermudez hired several women as massage therapists and are facing charges of coercion and sex trafficking by force. There is a concern that there may have been additional women hired and potentially victimized by Bermudez and Solano, and detectives are asking for them to come forward.


Anyone with information regarding Ana Delia Solano or Ana Cristina Bermudez, is asked to contact the Montgomery County Department of Police Vice and Intelligence Unit at 240-773-5958 or contact Crime Solvers of Montgomery County toll-free at 1-866-411-TIPS (8477). Callers may remain anonymous. 


Solano was arrested on Wednesday, November 30, and is being held without bond. Bermudez was arrested on Thursday, December 1. Her bond status is not currently available.
