Daytona Beach, FL – A former local high school basketball star and a Daytona Beach man who tried to pay for sex with a salad are among the 10 men taken in the latest Daytona Beach Police Department operation against prostitution.
29-year-old Alonzo Liverman (picture courtesy Volusia County Jail) of North Street and 33-year-old Tim Pickett of Deeley Street were arrested on Monday in an all-day operation that targeted those who pay for sex in areas which police say are known as solicitation hotbeds.
Liverman’s arrest report indicates he told the undercover police officer he tried to proposition that he had no money to offer for sexual services, but he did have a salad he could give in place of cash.
Pickett starred on the hardwood for Daytona Beach’s Mainland High School and then as a guard for Leonard Hamilton’s Seminole teams at the collegiate level in the early part of the 2000’s.
The 2-time All-Atlantic Coast Conference First Team selection was drafted in the 2nd round of the 2004 NBA Draft by the New Orleans Hornets but has spent most of his pro career playing overseas in Europe, Israel and Turkey.
86-year-old Steven Hardock of South Hollywood Avenue in Daytona Beach was the eldest of the 10 taken in by police, while 27-year-old Michael Jackson of Arlington Avenue in South Daytona was the youngest.
3 other Daytona Beach men were also taken into custody as part of the operation, including 72-year-old John Regan of South Palmetto Avenue, 35-year-old Justin Bowman of Francis Parkman Place and 30-year-old Christian Alfaro-Guerra of Mason Avenue.
The final 3 cuffed and booked at the Volusia County Jail were 65-year-old Ricardo Gomes of Peppermint Way in Port Orange, 43-year-old Matthew Campbell of Campbell Cove in Deltona and 28-year-old Christopher Paxton of Camella Drive in Ormond Beach.
All 10 men were charged with solicitation.
This operation came 1 week after 8 women and 1 man were arrested by DBPD for offering sexual services to undercover officers.
