Woman admits running mobile farm brothel

North Wales Police

A woman who ran a mobile brothel on a farm has been banned from approaching sex workers for seven years.

Thumma Peacock admitted using a rented caravan for prostitution at Manaw Farm in Bodedern. Police closed it down after they found two women from Thailand during a raid last September.

Llandudno magistrates heard the women had been paying £200 a week to use the caravan.

The following month, the farm’s owner, Alun Williams (63), became the first person in North Wales to be placed under a Slavery and Trafficking Risk Order – STRO.

The court heard there was risk that Peacock, who was convicted five years ago of controlling prostitution in Bangor, would become involved in human trafficking again.

Under the seven year risk order, Peacock must not advertise or encourage anyone to advertise sex services on her behalf.

She also has to inform police about any changes in address, mobile phone details and bank accounts – and cannot carry more than £200 in cash without a reasonable excuse.

After the hearing, police said they were still investigating the three people arrested during the raid.

Detective Chief Inspector Andy Gibson said: ”We welcome this second STRO. It sends a strong and clear message that underlines our commitment to making our force area the safest place to live in the United Kingdom.”

”This order seeks to reassure the public that we will continue to take action against those who engage in this type of criminal activity, and in doing so disrupt the lives of others within the community.”
