Two connected to human trafficking ring that targeted Edmond high school girls
OKLAHOMA CITY (KOKH) —
Oklahoma City police need your help tracking down two people in connection to a prostitution ring that recruited young girls from Edmond high schools.
Germaine Coulter is facing new criminal charges of human trafficking, pandering and conspiracy. Coulter has a criminal history dating back more than 20 years that includes violent crimes, drugs and prostitution-related crimes.
Police are also searching for one of Coulter’s known associates in his prostitution business, Elizabeth Andrade. She has a lengthy criminal history for prostitution-related crimes.
Coulter was only recently released from prison on a racketeering charge. He was convicted of running a criminal enterprise related to prostitution.
In the latest criminal case, investigators say Coulter had at least two Edmond high school students working for him as prostitutes. The court record indicates he was actively recruiting teenagers from Edmond for his prostitution business using the promise of money and potentially drugs.
Oklahoma City police found out about the prostitution ring after arresting Andrade as part of an undercover operation. Investigators say she attempted to destroy one of two cell phones at the time of her arrest. However, police were able to recover text messages between Andrade and Coulter in which the prostitution business was discussed.
Coulter and Andrade both have active warrants out for their arrest.

- 2013 Tan Cadillac XTS – OK Plate GBH236
- A 2014 Gray Cadillac CTS—OK Plate CIT835
