Welwyn Hatfield trio face brothel charges

THREE people will appear before magistrates to face charges of running a brothel.

The trio returned to Hatfield police station on Monday to answer bail, having been arrested in November last year in an operation targeting the vice trade in the borough.

Valetina Janutiene, 36, of Cromer Hyde Lane, Lemsford; Andrew Neville, 45, of Brocket Road, WGC; and Katrina Baker, 35, of Thistle Grove, WGC, were all charged with managing a brothel.

They are due to appear at Central Herts Magistrates’ Court in St Albans next month.

A 47-year-old woman from London who was also arrested during the raids failed to answer bail on Monday.
