'Magical Lizzy' Accused of Operating Bordello Out of Maryland Apartment
LAUREL, Md. – A Laurel woman is under arrest on charges she operated a house of prostitution at the apartment complex where she lived.
Anne Arundel County Police say 35-year-old Elizabeth Harrison identified herself on a Website as "Magical Lizzy." She faces four criminal charges, including receiving money from prostitutes with the intent of promoting and profiting from a crime.
The arrest followed complaints from residents of the Russett Green community about men and women showing up at all hours at an apartment in the 3400 block of Holly Creek Drive. Police learned the women were advertising sexual services on the Internet.
Police say an undercover officer was solicited for sex acts, resulting in a raid and Harrison's arrest.
A police spokesman says the other women allegedly operating out of the house are still under investigation and have not been charged.
