The Grand Junction Police Department received information from a 17 year old female that she was approached by Renfro in the 1200 Block of North Avenue, where he offered to pay her in exchange for photographs of her for a website that he operates. He later transported the female to another location in the City where he provided the victim with a schedule III/IV narcotic and proceeded to take numerous nude photographs of her. Renfro also attempted to solicit the victim to perform sexual acts on another individual in exchange for money.
Kevin Renfro was contacted in the area of the 2400 Block of Hwy 6 and 50 where he was taken into custody and booked into the Mesa County Jail on charges of human trafficking of juveniles, pandering to a child, inducement of child prostitution, soliciting for child prostitution, two counts of sexual exploitation of a child, and distribution of a schedule III/IV controlled substance to a minor.
If you or someone you know has been contacted by Kevin Renfro under similar circumstances, we ask that you please contact Detective Julie Stogsdill at (970)549-5231.
