Lamin Manneh Marissa Braun

A Baltimore city police officer was arrested last week after he allegedly tried to pimp his wife out to an undercover cop, WBAL-TV 11 reports.

The Maryland State Police Child Recovery Unit was working its normal routine Thursday night when they noticed an ad online featuring a very young-looking woman offering her services as an escort. Authorities say, however, that the website on which the ad was found is known for facilitating prostitution.

The cops responded to the ad and set up a meeting. An undercover officer met with the woman in question, 19-year-old Marissa Braun, at a hotel room in the area around Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport. Her husband, 31-year-old Lamin Manneh, waited outside in the parking lot, according to authorities.

Braun was arrested after she allegedly told the undercover officer, “You give me the $100 and then you can (have sex) with me.”

She then said her husband “posts the ads and uses his credit cards to do so. He drives her from date to date since she cannot drive.”

Manneh was charged with human trafficking and prostitution and Braun was charged with one count of prostitution.

Manneh has been suspended from the Baltimore City Police Department without pay pending an internal affairs investigation. He is reportedly in a probationary period with the department, so his arrest will likely lead to dismissal.

Baltimore City Police Department spokesman Anthony Guglielmi released the following statement from Deputy Commissioner Jerry Rodriguez:

“This allegation is a disgrace and embarrassment to every member — both current and retired — who serve with the Baltimore Police Department. The alleged actions and criminal charges brought against Mr. Manneh are serious and undermine the integrity and pride of this organization. We expect every member of this department to hold themselves to the highest of professional standards. Our colleagues and our community deserve nothing less.”
