Why Miami isn't like where you live: Brothel bus busted

Clyde Scott — a 41-year-old with the words "trust no man" tattooed on his back — was the driver and money holder.

Leah Harriss, Princess Thigpen and Kimberly Daniels allegedly lured the potential clients aboard and, along with Leighann Redding, offered sex for cash.

And Christine Morteh, 29, was their madame, police say.

These six tooled through South Beach in a massive limo bus last weekend in what police are calling a brothel-on-wheels.

Their enterprise came to a screeching halt at 3:15 Sunday morning, when they picked up the wrong fare -- three undercover Miami Beach cops -- within walking distance of the police station.

''It was very brazen,'' said Detective Juan Sanchez, a Miami Beach police spokesman. "They were offering everything from lap dances to sex."

Now, the six face charges that range from violating the public dance hall ordinance (the women were technically ''dancing'') to possession of a controlled substance (Scott had six tablets of Viagra on him at the time of his arrest).

And, of course, multiple counts of prostitution.

The bus — a sleek, black conversion vehicle that has the cab of a tractor trailer — is no longer in service.
