Police in Miramar, South Florida have arrested two men who are accused of selling a 17-year-old girl for sex in a industrial neighborhood.
The cops collared Andre Raymon Wallace, 42, who was in an idling car at 4 a.m. on February 6. while behind a car wash in the 1800 block of Southwest 100th Terrace.
Wallace was waiting for the girl, who was having sex with a man at a home in an industrial area south of Pembroke Road and east of Palm Avenue, police said.
