Pimp fugitive caught in VA

From the NY Post:

A 13-year-old runaway was locked in a ramshackle Jamaica apartment without running water and was pimped out by a Queens man for 10 nightmarish days, officials said yesterday.

Anthony Vargas, 21, was indicted yesterday on a slew of charges for the imprisonment and sex-trafficking. He's being held without bail, and faces 25 years to life in prison.

During a 10-day period, Vargas allegedly had sex with his hostage, and took her to several parts of Queens to pimp her out. When they returned to the dungeon, he allegedly kept her in a small room that she couldn't escape.

Detectives at the NYPD Missing Persons Squad received a tip about the girl on April 12, saying she was sighted at 106-49 Ruscoe St.

The detectives pried open a locked door that led them to the small prison, prosecutors said.

Vargas fled New York and was apprehended in Newport News, Va., two weeks ago.

Crappy is increasingly going easy on the Queens Democratic Machine as Crappy pumps out network pablum like this story and stuttlebut on the other boroughs.

No wonder postings are down here.

A deal with the "bhoys" in the works Crappy?
