Police Arrest Bar Code Pimps

Bar Code Pimps tattoo

“Spanish police have arrested 22 people on suspicion of using violence to force women into prostitution and tattooing them with bar codes as a sign of ownership.

Police are calling the gang the “bar code pimps.” Officers freed one 19-year-old woman who had been beaten, held against her will and tattooed with a bar code and an amount of money – (EURO)2,000 ($2,650) – which investigators believe was the debt the gang wished to extort before freeing her.

The Interior Ministry said Saturday that all those arrested were of Romanian nationality and had forced the women to hand over part of their earnings.

The women were tattooed on their wrists. Police also seized guns and ammunition although it was not clear when the raids took place.”
