Another arrest in call-girl case

LAWRENCEVILLE - A third pandering arrest warrant related to an alleged high-end call-girl ring in Gwinnett was obtained Wednesday for a Cumming man.

Kerry Philip Kruzel, 43, turned himself over to deputies the same day police called and told him of the charge.

He was processed at the Gwinnett County Detention Center on Wednesday afternoon on the pandering charge and is out on bond.

Also obtained Wednesday was the fourth drug-related arrest warrant in the case.

Marc Alfred Garzon, 36, of Roswell is charged with conspiracy to distribute marijuana, said Gwinnett County police spokesman Cpl. Darren Moloney.

Moloney said police were unable to reach Garzon on Wednesday morning to notify him of the charge.

As of press time Wednesday, he was not in custody.

The two men are believed to be connected to the case involving Lisa Taylor, 42, of Duluth, and Nicole Probert, 30, of Lawrenceville, who are charged with violations of the Racketeering Influenced Corrupt Organizations Act, prostitution, keeping a place of prostitution and conspiracy to possess cocaine.

Both women are believed to have engaged in acts of prostitution where drugs were a factor in exchange for fees ranging up to $10,000.

Others charged with pandering in connection with case include Daniel Luigi Marfione, 32, of Atlanta and Alexander William "Billy" Rider, 56, of Kennesaw.

Meanwhile, Charles Edwin Hill II, 38, of Lawrenceville and Mecoa Naketia Allen, 28, of Locust Grove have been charged with conspiracy to possess cocaine.

Taylor, an adult entertainer and former Penthouse Pet who moonlights as Melissa Wolf, resides in a million-dollar house in Sugarloaf Country Club, while Probert, also known as Brigit Foxxx and Naughty Nikki, resides in a home in the Edgewater Subdivision in Lawrenceville.

Taylor, who is scheduled to appear at a number of adult clubs over the next few weeks in the U.S. and Canada, denies any illegal activities.

Probert, who also denies the allegations, has not spoken publicly since she and Taylor's Jan. 3 arrests.

Moloney said police are searching computer files, while Porter said authorities have calendars and date books that might contain names related to the case.

Additional arrests are pending.
