  • Thursday, February 23, 2017

The Dalton Police Department arrested eight potential “Johns” in a prostitution sting on Wednesday night. In recent months, Dalton detectives have received complaints of prostitutes operating in the area and have been investigating. 

An undercover officer posed as a prostitute for the operation.

Investigators placed an ad online and the suspects agreed to meet with the officer at an apartment in Dalton. Arrested in the operation were: Banner Anibal Tomas-Bail, 27, of 105 Cambron Drive in Dalton, Oscar Holliday, 28, of 2170 Arbordale Place in Dalton, Joseph Brandt, 33, of 606 Fargo Drive in Fort Oglethorpe, Muhammed Rasheed, 63, of 3679 Bouldercrest Road in Ellenwood, Ga., Kyle Michael Chadwick, 28, of Britney Drive in Chatsworth, Mark John Gibson, 41, of 3646 Costa Lane in Tunnel Hill, and Miguel Jarquin-Ordaz, 39, of 806 Brentwood Drive in Dalton.

Each arrestee was charged with one count of misdemeanor pandering against a person 18 years of age or older.

Also arrested was Stacey Gene Hill, 59, of 6201 Regency Court in Chattanooga. He is the athletic director at Girls Preparatory School.

GPS officials said, "The GPS administration has recently become aware of misdemeanor charges that have been brought by the Dalton Police Department against Athletic Director Stacey Hill.

"We are in the process of gathering information surrounding the incident that has been reported. Per school policy in matters such as this, Mr. Hill has been temporarily relieved of his duties, both on campus and off.  

"At the present time, this is a legal matter between Mr. Hill and the Dalton, Ga., authorities, and it would not be appropriate for GPS to comment further."
