Police say 65-year-old Joseph Van Wert, left, and 45-year-old Randy Lambach ran a prostitution ring out of an apartment at a senior living facility in Pittsfield, Massachusetts.

. The Berkshire Eagle reports that the police investigation began last spring in response to citizen complaints about increased prostitution across the city. Law enforcement say 65-year-old Joseph Van Wert and 45-year-old Randy Lambach are being held without bail until their hearing on November 29.

The prostitution was conducted out of the senior living facility where Lambach's partner, 65-year-old Joseph VanWert, lives. Lambach facilitated meeting locations with prospective "johns" and transported these women to specified locations. He also brought the women to meet with customers.

The men sometimes gave the prostitutes heroin, cocaine and prescription medication. He allegedly threatened to turn the women in if they stopped working for him, telling them that no one would believe "drug addicts and whores", The New York Post reported.

Lambach photographed her and placed advertisements on backpage.com, she added.

From the left, Randy Lambach and Joseph Van Wert were arrested for allegedly operating a prostitution scheme in MA.

Lt Maddalena said officers are making every effort to help to the victims in the case.

Lambach pleaded not guilty to four counts of human trafficking, while VanWert pleaded not guilty to conspiracy to commit human trafficking, deriving support from prostitution, maintaining a house of prostitution and sexual conduct for a fee.
