MIAMI (FloridaToday.news) – Miami-Dade State Attorney Katherine Fernandez Rundle today announced the successful completion of a multi-agency undercover anti-trafficking operation that resulted in the arrest of 27-year-old Pablo Casademunt.
The operation involved the coordinated efforts of the Miami-Dade State Attorney’s Anti-Trafficking Task Force, the Miami Gardens Police Department (MGPD), the South Miami Police Department (SMPD), the U.S. Secret Service (USSS), and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. (HSI).
“Investigations into possible human trafficking often lead to very unusual and very unfortunate situations,” said State Attorney Katherine Fernandez Rundle. “Supposedly selling your child’s mother and taking the child with you for a walk is a new minimum in the field of criminal behavior. I applaud the members of my Human Trafficking Task Force and those agencies that assist the Task Force for handling the whole situation with great correctness and sensitivity.”
Casademunt’s arrest came after an undercover detective responded to a sexually explicit advertisement allegedly hosted by Casademunt and offered a 30-minute meeting for $350. As planned, Casademunt arrived at the hotel’s pre-arranged meeting point, where his girlfriend entered the room and received payment using registered investigative funds. It was at this point that law enforcement took Casademunt into custody. Amazingly, during the operation, it was discovered that the couple’s infant was in a car seat.
Pablo Casademunt faces multiple charges, including one count of receiving support from the proceeds of prostitution, one count of illegally using a communication device, and one count of sending another person to a place of prostitution.
