A 30-year-old man was arrested late last week after he allegedly forced a woman to place 280 online advertisements for sex for a fee this summer, an arrest affidavit states.

Felix Nosa Omoruyi, of DeSoto, was arrested Friday in a undercover prostitution investigation conducted by the McLennan County Sheriff's Office in August. According to the affidavit, investigators made contact with a woman through on online ad in early August, who was arranging to meet sex buyers at a Bellmead motel to engage in sex for a fee.

"While conducting an initial investigation into her ad history, I learned that she had approximately 280 ads in five different states," the detective states in the affidavit. 

Investigators met with the woman, who was detained for prostitution charges before detectives received a search warrant for her cellphone, the affidavit states. In her cellphone history, authorities found messages between the woman and Omoruyi.

"While reviewing the text messages, I observed where Omoruyi is instructing the female to post ads in various areas, as well as to post other females as well," the affidavit states. "Also during the communication between the two, I observed where she is transferring money to him and visa versa."

Authorities received an arrest affidavit on a third-degree felony charge of aggravated promotion of prostitution. Omoruyi was arrested and booked into McLennan County Jail before he posted a $7,000 bond and was released Sunday.
