Edon man charged in prostitution investigation

Police in Edon have arrested 45-year-old man on a charge of com­pelling a minor to engage in pros­ti­tu­tion, that’s a third degree felony. He was arrested at his job as co-manager of Bomber’s Saloon and Steak­house on New Year’s Eve about 5 p.m. Edon police say the arrest came after a long-term inves­ti­ga­tion by the depart­ment. John­ston was con­tacted by the Bryan Times and they say he vehe­mently denied the valid­ity of the charges and offered no com­ment. The restau­rant is not part of the alleged crime, so it is open for busi­ness. John­ston has a pre­vi­ous con­vic­tion for domes­tic vio­lence in 2013. After his recent arrest, he was released on his own recog­ni­zance and has a court date on Jan­u­ary 11th.
