A foster dad allegedly pimped out children in his care along with a 65-year-old accomplice as they ran a prostitution ring from an apartment at a senior living facility in Massachusetts.

Pittsfield police arrested 65-year-old Joseph Van Wert and 45-year-old foster dad Randy Lambach and held them without bail on charges including human trafficking.

Authorities say Lambach recruited drug addicts from Pittsfield, took photos of them, and posted ads on adult websites,The Berkshire Eagle reports.

Police say he scheduled and drove the women, whom police found to be some of his foster children, to and from meetings with men, seeking clients for sexual services.

He kept anywhere from 50 to 90 percent of the money and sometimes he would take the full profit and pay the woman with a few bags of heroin or some crack cocaine.

Apparently Van Wert used his apartment at a senior living facility as a place to conduct the prostitution and his partner in crime, Lambach, allegedly threatened to turn the women in if they refused to work claiming police would not believe them because they were, ‘drug addicts and wh***s’.

After complaints regarding an apparent increase in prostitution throughout the city police began the investigation in the spring of 2017.

The police conducted patrols interviewing multiple prostitutes on the streets, however many declined to say who ‘tricked them out’.
