New Charges Filed In Berlin, N.J. Bookstore Prostitution Case

Posted: Updated:
BERLIN, N.J. -

New charges have been filed in a raid on an adult book store in Berlin, New Jersey.

Police say a worker there used an app to promote prostitution in a back room of the store.

An employee is facing charges, and residents are left stunned.

Their Yahoo group suggests play lounge is where the action is, as undercover officers observed numerous sex acts.

Police set up a six month sting and discovered that a mobile app was central to the operation.

Paul Perkins is charged with promoting prostitution, as his name is on the app. Police say he would send out alerts to let users know when women entered the store, and then charge men 10 bucks to get into the back room.

"When a female did enter the building there was an alert put out on that app giving you date and time, when the alert went out more people would show up to the establishment go into back room where multiple sex acts would go on," said Berlin Township Police Chief Leonard Check.

The store is right across from the widely popular kids water park and right in front of this elementary school.

"That kind of stuff bothers me right down the road, it's where kids are," said Camden Country resident Michelle Cormany.
