A Tennessee man is accused of leading a traveling prostitution ring that began in Memphis and ended in West Palm Beach.

Derrion Kirby, 30, was arrested Friday on human trafficking and deriving proceeds of prostitution charges after deputies say he shuttled two women across the South to perform sexual acts in exchange for money. Jail records show he’s being held in Palm Beach County on a $220,000 bond.

The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office became aware of Kirby’s doings Friday evening when one of the women, an 18-year-old, called 911. Deputies responded to a LaQuinta Hotel in West Palm Beach where the teenager explained how she wound up journeying from Memphis to Little Rock, Arkansas, to New Orleans to Tampa to Miami, working as a prostitute along the way, according to an arrest report.
