Police say they have arrested a 43-year-old Chino Valley man on multiple charges of sex trafficking. 

Leon Taylor was taken into a custody after police say he utilized several adult women and a juvenile female as prostitutes for his personal use and for the use of at least one other man. 

At least one of the women involved in the investigation has been returned to her parents in another state with the help of a non-profit organization, police said.

Taylor was booked into the Yavapai County Jail on charges of sex trafficking of a minor, sex trafficking, sexual abuse, sexual conduct with a minor and sexual exploitation of a minor.

Police say the alleged activities have been taking place since October of 2016. 

Authorities are now processing photographic, video, and computer records. Police are asking anyone with additional information to contact the Chino Valley Police Department and to ask for Detective Amy Chamberlin.
