Police say Glen L. Dukes lured in at least two East Side women with food, clothing, shelter, and crack cocaine and in exchange pimped them out, took all their earnings, and beat them if they didn't obey his commands. Authorities arrested Dukes, 43, this week on two counts of continuous trafficking of persons. If convicted, he could face at least 25 years in prison.

And if Dukes' "Pimpin," "Menace," and "Thug," tattoos scrawled across his face and neck weren't creep-tastic enough, when police executed search warrants on two of Dukes' East Side homes Wednesday they found hidden rooms that had been set up with make-shift walls to allow for secret viewing. Police are still searching for more women who may have been victimized by Dukes, and ask that anyone with more information call 210-207-2313. Fox 29 reports that authorities are also investigating whether Dukes may have been involved with the unsolved murders of two women on East Side last year.  – Michael Barajas
