Soho sex den masseuse jailed after admitting drug charges
A masseuse who ran a Soho sex den has been jailed for six years after admitting drugs offences and possessing stun guns and false passports, police said. Flavien Cortes, 38, was found to have supplied large amounts of drugs while offering bondage-themed sexual services to men from his Wardour Street apartment.
Police told Southwark Crown Court a search of the flat in January uncovered 40 bottles of gamma butyrolactone (GBL), several Tasers, a number of false passports and a variety of class A, B and C drugs - as well as £30,000 in cash.
Cortes pleaded guilty prior to sentencing via videolink from prison to 19 charges.
Fourteen charges related to possession and intent to supply class A, B and C drugs.
He was also charged with one count of possessing a disguised firearm, one count of possessing a prohibited firearm, one count of possessing criminal property, and two counts of possession of an identity document with improper intention.
Police told the court officers had found the two Taser-style firearms disguised as a cattle prod and a torch.
Officers also discovered a room in the flat designed for sexual activity, with equipment used to record and share activity online.
Cortes was sentenced to six years and eight months in prison.Published: by Radio NewsHub
