A real estate agent has been arrested after Arlington County police say he solicited the services of a prostitute inside a vacant, for-sale home.
Springfield, Va. resident Dennis Mahafkey, 55, was charged with unlawful entry and solicitation of prostitution after being apprehended on the 3700 block of South 2nd Street on Friday, March 11. Cops say they were tipped off when someone called to report a suspicious vehicle next to the home.
“Police were alerted when people saw a car in the driveway that did not belong there,” said police spokeswoman Det. Crystal Nosal.
Nosal said that Mahafkey was not the “listing agent” on the home, but had access via a key box on the door.
Mahafkey has 24 years of real estate experience and is noted for his “award winning service,” according to a profile on the Coldwell Banker web site. He was held on a $5,000 bond.
The arrest was listed in this week’s Arlington County crime report.
