Brisbane ‘sex slave ring’ accused face court over allegations of prostitution

Confronting particulars have been dropped at mild after a person and a girl had been accused of sexually exploiting younger girls from a Brisbane house.

Matthew James Markcrow, 35, and his co-accused Crystal Marie Sawyer, 23, had been arrested in dramatic style after a four-month-long investigation on Friday.

Watch the dramatic arrest within the video above.

Police bodycam footage of the arrest confirmed a small bag of white powder and stacks of $50 notes being seized as Markcrow was put in handcuffs.

Officers will allege they’re the proceeds of crime after Markcrow allegedly recruited girls between the ages of 17 and 24 to be concerned in a “intercourse slave ring”.

He would give his victims medication to cloud their judgement and management their residing, monetary and dealing situations, police say.
