There is still prostitution on T Street

From WTVR:

After spotting multiple people allegedly having sex, in broad daylight, on the back porch of a vacant Richmond house, viewers contacted the CBS 6 Problem Solvers for help.

One viewer said her family could not enjoy hanging out in their own backyard because of the lewd activities taking place across the alleyway. The vacant house in question sits near N 21st and T Streets, according to the viewer.

The prostitution traffic along T Street is well-known, long term situation – the area was designated a Target Enforcement Zone almost 10 years ago, and it wasn’t a new thing back then.

The police who have spoken at the New Vision Civic Association meetings over the years have always said that arrests make no impact, and that anyone picked up is quickly back on the street. They also draw a strong connection between prostitution and drug addiction.

The vacant house at 1316 North 21st Street is owned by TNT CONSTRUCTION CAROLINA LLC of 2500 East Leigh Street, who bought the property in July of this year. That the house is vacant and has been vacant for some years rests squarely at the feet of shady developers – the house was owned for 13 years by Clayton Investment Group and before that by Justin French.

WTF stop that shot put the police on it and don’t stop sharing info.

Maybe if the owners of the house actually do something with it, this won’t be as much of a problem.

Lol this has been going on forr years. And what is sad is that a few of these young women I knew from high school and now it’s sad that they are herion addicts. Most of the women who are on t Street prostitute for heroin. Ive seen contractors and City of Richmond workers pick up these women. This is well known.

So gangs and pimps are operating on this area of T street?

Will hall 08/22/2017 at 9:07 AM

@j low level pimps. Nothing about t Street is gang related. It’s just a few crackheads and herion addicts trying to get money too get high

Oh Wurd?!

Ha, it almost sounds like an advertisement.

MP 08/22/2017 at 11:21 AM

I’m confused – they’re arrested but then back on the street? Why aren’t they prosecuted?

I work nights often and live in the area. I can’t tell you how many times I have seen women out Btwn 2-4 am “working” Btwn 21-23 on T st. I almost always call the cops, never seen anyone come by after. Sometimes I walk my dogs down there and ask them to move along, usually told to fuck off or have mumbled threats as they disappear down an alley. No one does anything. Sometimes you’ll see them out there as early as 10 pm with kids hanging around yards and porches a few houses away. (This summer at least)

Just read the actual article. I want to add that I have never in my years seen an officer “walking a beat” in this area! When was that officer added?! Not even in daylight!

Keep in mind that in many parts of the world prostitution is legal, and let’s be real, this is the city of Richmond

Dan Rooney 08/22/2017 at 2:49 PM

Still Church Hill…. Still Richmond…

Dawnstar Cleghorn 08/23/2017 at 9:06 AM

Laughing at how many new customers you just helped these ladies out with… they couldn’t pay for a better advertisement… good job news

Danny Ingram 08/24/2017 at 10:56 AM

Remember you moved into their neighborhood. They didn’t move into yours.

Bobby J 08/24/2017 at 3:07 PM

we should consider these prostitutes feelings before jumping to the conclusion that they are sinners

Ed 06/04/2021 at 2:51 PM

I know a girl the cop picked her up told her she had to give him sex. Or take a ride downtown you know which one she did then he gave her a $20 wow that’s Justice
