MARLBOROUGH - A local man was among nine people indicted Thursday by a statewide grand jury on human trafficking charges, authorities said.

The grand jury charged Luis Londono, 44, of Marlborough, with trafficking a person for sexual servitude, being a keeper of a house of prostitution, keeping a house of ill-fame and conspiracy to commit trafficking.

Marlborough police arrested Londono in August as part of an investigation by the state Attorney General’s Office. Authorities say the group used three homes – in Chelsea, East Boston and Lynn – as fronts for human trafficking.

Authorities said Londono and the other eight people charged recruited the victims and then advertised sexual services online. They then made appointments for sex and brought the women back and forth to the meeting places while collecting the money. The women lived in one of the three homes and rarely left unless accompanied by one of the nine who authorities say ran the organization.

Also indicted were:

Christina Lasso, 47, and Joe DeBlas, 33, both of Lynn, charged with four counts each of trafficking for sexual servitude; keeping a house of prostitution; and being a keeper of a house of ill-fame. Lasso was also charged with two counts of conspiracy to commit trafficking and one count of money laundering. Marlon Nagano, 37, of East Boston; Donoban Yesid Asimendy Ospina, 25, of Lynn; and Johana Haneo Torres, 35, of Lynn. All were charged with three counts of trafficking for sexual servitude and being a keeper of a house of ill-fame. They were also charged with conspiracy to commit trafficking and money laundering. Francisco Sanan Bay, 30, of Chelsea, and Edmundo River Gomez, 50, of Lynn. Both were charged with two counts each of trafficking for sexual servitude; keeping a house of prostitution and being a keeper of a house of ill-fame. They were also charged with conspiracy to commit trafficking and money laundering. Jorge Lasso, 54, of Chelsea, was charged with trafficking for sexual servitude; keeping a house of prostitution; being a keeper of a house of ill-fame; conspiracy to commit trafficking and money laundering.

All nine suspects are scheduled to be arraigned Oct. 16 in Suffolk Superior Court.
