ORANGE COUNTY, Calif. (FOX 11) - Investigators in Orange County are seeking additional victims of human trafficking by a YouTube rapper who was arrested early last week on charges of pimping and pandering an 18-year-old Orange County woman.
Rapper Benjiboy Staccs, whose real name is Angel Ortiz Diamond, pleaded not guilty to one felony count of pimping and one felony count of pandering.
The Orange County Human Trafficking Task Force initiated an investigation into Diamond's activities after receiving reports from a relative of the victim.
On the rapper's YouTube page, he's posted numerous videos with songs glorifying the pimping subculture. Investigators believe Diamond uses his social media following to meet young women in clubs, and ultimately lure them into the human trafficking circuit.
Anyone who has been, or knows of someone who has been exploited by Diamond, is asked to call Anaheim Police Sgt. Juan Reveles at 714-765-1829.
Diamond was booked at Orange County Jail and remains in custody.
