A 57-year-old woman from Wembley, who pleaded guilty to running a brothel, has been sentenced.
Hermien Van Boekel, of Ealing Road, was given an 18-month jail term, suspended for 24 months at Harrow Crown Court on Wednesday (April 15). She pleaded guilty on March 12.
Due to concerns the property was being used as a brothel, officers executed a search warrant on December 18, 2013 at the Wembley Inn Hotel.
A number of women from Eastern Europe, who were believed to be prostitutes, were found as well one girl aged just 17.
Police seized computers and mobile phones that had been used to advertise the women and stored photos of the girls.
Van Boekel was arrested on suspicion of running a brothel and additional arrests were made on other people in the hotel for immigration offences, child neglect and drug offences.
After being issued with a closure order in January 2014, the hotel has since reopened yet is unauthorised to sell alcohol and is being closely monitored by the local authority.
Van Boekel was charged on June 2 last year.
Investigating officer, Detective Constable Paul Connelly, said: "This premises was responsible for a significant portion of anti-social behaviour in the Wembley Central area causing upset to the local community.
“Local officers were regularly required to attend to deal with issue generated by this hotel. I'm pleased with the result and this is an excellent example of the community working with the police to deal with local problems."
