Kentucky man who owns area Domino’s Pizza franchises arrested in human trafficking sting

The owner of dozens of Domino’s Pizza franchises in the Cincinnati area was one of 160 people arrested during a seven-day human trafficking enforcement operation in Florida.

Polk County, Fla., officials said 61-year-old John Glass, of Verona, Kentucky, responded to an online escort advertisement and agreed to have sex with an undercover detective while he and his family were at their vacation home in Kissimmee.

Glass, who owns Glass Family Pizza Inc. was arrested as part of “Fall Haul 2,” an undercover sting operation led by the Polk County Sheriff’s Office. Police arrested 14 other people from out-of-state.

Two trafficking victims and another five possible victims were identified during the sting. All victims and prostitutes were offered services by social services organizations at the operation, deputies said.

“The online prostitution industry enables traffickers and allows for the continued victimization of those who are being trafficked,” Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd said in a release. “Our goal is to identify victims, offer them help, and arrest those who are fueling the exploitation of human beings (johns) and those profiting from the exploitation of human beings.”

Officials said there were 419 previous felonies and 619 previous misdemeanors among those arrested. Detectives found heroin, cocaine, methamphetamine, ecstasy and marijuana during the sting.
