The two women were allegedly hired to perform service and the Pittsfield Police Lieutenant said, “Van Wert used his residence at a senior living facility as a place to conduct the prostitution.” He also said, “The women were recruited by Lambach, then photographed and advertised on social media sites. Lambach facilitated meeting locations with prospective ‘johns’ and transported these women to specified locations. He would often wait nearby to take a portion of the earnings. He would also compensate the women with narcotics in lieu of cash. This included heroin, cocaine and prescription medication.” The two men haven’t been sentenced yet, but we will keep you updated on what happens.
