Two Arrested for Patronizing Prostitution & Solicitation of Minor

By Jessie Williams 

Two men were arrested last week for offering money for sex, to an undercover posing as a 14-year-old girl. 

The first arrest involved 32-year-old Ricardo Ramon Moctezuma, of Celina, TN. 

According to a report filed by Red Boiling Springs Chief of Police Joseph Woodard, Moctezuma messaged an undercover Facebook account, speaking with what he believed to be a 14-year-old female. 

He agreed to pay the undercover $150 for sex and meet at a predetermined location in Red Boiling Springs.

When officers observed Moctezuma arrive at the location, he was taken into custody without incident on December 22, 2023. 

He was charged with patronizing prostitution, promoting prostitution and solicitation of a minor. His bond was set at $60,000, and he is scheduled to appear in general sessions court on January 17, 2024. 

A similar chain of events occurred on December 27, 2023 and resulted in the arrest of another man – 55-year-old Stephen Ray Creasy, of Hendersonville, TN. 

Mr. Creasy also messaged an undercover Facebook account, and believed he was speaking with a 14-year-old female. 

He agreed to pay the undercover $100 for sex at a predetermined location.

Upon Creasy’s arrival at the location, he attempted to evade arrest in his vehicle, driving recklessly and running two stop signs.

He was eventually taken into custody and charged with patronizing prostitution, promoting prostitution, solicitation of a minor, resisting arrest, reckless driving, evading arrest, failure to stop (2 counts) and violation of sex offender registry. 

His bond was set at $105,000, and he is scheduled to appear in general sessions court on January 17, 2024.
