GEORGETOWN, Del. — Police in Delaware say they’ve busted a commercial sex operation and arrested a man on felony prostitution charges.

The Daily Times of Salisbury, Maryland reported Thursday that Ismeal Ayala was taken into custody by Delaware State Police without incident.

The 33-year-old lived in Georgetown and allegedly operated from his home.
