Fourth man arrested in connection with alleged call girls

LAWRENCEVILLE - A fourth man charged in connection with the case involving two alleged high-end call girls turned himself over to deputies Tuesday afternoon.

Mecoa Naketia Allen, 28, of Locust Grove, who is charged with conspiracy to possess cocaine, turned himself over to sheriff's deputies about

3:30 p.m., said Gwinnett County Sheriff's Department spokeswoman Stacey Bourbonnais.

Warrants for the drug conspiracy charges were issued last week for Allen and 38-year-old Charles Edwin Hill of Lawrenceville.

Hill, who has no prior arrest record in Gwinnett, was arrested Jan. 12 and transported to the Gwinnett County Detention Center, said Gwinnett County police spokesman Cpl. Darren Moloney.

Allen's prior arrest record in Gwinnett ranges from traffic offenses to drug charges, Moloney said.

The drug charges stem from both men's alleged involvement with Lisa Ann Taylor, 42, of Duluth, and Nicole A. Probert, 30, of Lawrenceville, who are accused of engaging in high-end acts of prostitution. They have been charged with conspiracy to possess cocaine, racketeering, prostitution and keeping a place of

prostitution.

The first two men charged since news of Taylor and Probert made headlines were Daniel Luigi Marfione, 32, of Atlanta and Alexander William "Billy" Rider, 56, of Kennesaw, who police believe are two of Probert's johns. They have been charged with pandering and are free on bond.

District Attorney Danny Porter says Taylor and Probert rendered their services in exchange for fees ranging up to $10,000 both in Gwinnett and other areas.

Moloney said further arrests are pending, as police are searching through computer files seized in the arrests to find other suspects.

Porter said last week that authorities also have calendars and date books that might contain names of other johns who have paid for services. Porter also said other call girls might be implicated in the investigation as well.
