Sheriff Judd: Deputies nab Polk County ‘pimps’

Posted: Updated:
LAKELAND (FOX 13) -

Authorities in Polk County say they've nabbed two men for "pimping out" a 15-year-old girl.

Michael Kempfer, 48, and Montavious Postell, 22, face human trafficking charges. Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd says the men were selling her out in prostitution to make money.

Kempfer was already in jail – now facing more charges. Postell was tracked down in Tampa, and police assisted in arresting him at a hotel on east Fowler Avenue.

Detectives first got on their tracks May 8 when deputies made dozens of arrests in a prostitution sting. They took that 15-year-old girl into custody, and connected Kempfer and Postell to the girl.

On Tuesday, detectives initially went to search Postell and Kempfer's home in Orlando and said they found crack cocaine, two loaded handguns in plain sight and several photos of the same 15-year-old girl. They said they also found "gang paraphernalia."

Postell has been arrested 51 times in Florida.
