Dramatic police raids broke up a child prostitution ring where more than 250 underage girls were branded with tattoos by their ‘owners’. 

Police made the arrests after the girls were lured into coming the Colombian resort of Cartagena under the pretence of working as models there. 

She has been kept in detention since her arrest. 

‘Never, never have there been minors involved,’ Campos Puello reportedly told local media in an interview from jail.  

While prostitution in the South American state remains legal, prosecutors allege that Campos Puello coerced women from poor backgrounds.

She allegedly helped them with passports and sent them money for expenses under the guise that she had modelling opportunities. 

But when the girls arrived in Cartagena, they were stripped of their documents and belongings and forced into prostitution.

They were allegedly showcased in catalogues and forced to attend sex parties on luxury yachts and hotels.

Campos Puello hired the girls and introduced them to the clients.

Before each event, she would allegedly always select the best-suited girls from their list.

At least 250 minors were reportedly lured to Cartagena in one year, in what is being called the city’s largest sexual exploitation case.

The Attorney General’s Office said Campos Puello used her contacts to organise events the girls were forced to go to.

She also has a record for heroin trafficking as well as for entering the United States illegally. 

The trial continues.
