Police arrested a woman on accusations she was running an Internet-based prostitution business out of her Richmond-area neighborhood.

Robin Jeanette Jordan, 37, was being held Thursday on a $5,000 bond at the Harris County Jail on a charge of prostitution.

According to the Fort Bend County Sheriff's Office, Jordan was arrested Friday after drug agents raided her Pecan Grove home in the in the 2900 block of Jane Long League Dr. and unearthed what they believe is a prostitution business.

Jordan had been the subject of a months-long investigation by the FBCSO Narcotics Task Force and the Houston Police Department. They were able to infiltrate the business and go undercover to gather evidence, including surveillance videos of people associated with the prostitution organization, officials said.

Undercover agents said they connected Jordan to a known associate who is out of jail on bond pending felony drug-related charges in Fort Bend County. They were also able to download information from the business' website, which listed the types of personal services offered and the prices of the services, officials said.

Once enough evidence was gathered to get a search warrant, agents searched Jordan's home and found home video footage of her associating with a recently convicted money launderer, plus several CD-Rs and DVDs containing sexually-explicit images and videos, a large amount of paperwork listing names and phone numbers, ledgers and other items.

Agents also found a female at the residence who had two prior prostitution convictions.

The items were all seized by deputies to be examined for further evidence in the investigation.
