Underage girl found who was allegedly being forced into prostitution in Concord

September 28, 2010 12:35 pm · 37 comments

On September 24th at midnight, Concord Police officers went to a residence in the 1600 block of Donaldson Court, which is off Olive Drive, looking for a subject who was wanted for an outstanding warrant for violation of parole.

Lt. Jim Lardieri with the Concord Police Department tells us when they arrived, they found an underage girl who was allegedly being forced into prostitution….

The officers located the wanted subject and arrested him. This subject is identified as Mario Cano, age 33.

The officers also located a 37 year old male and 16 year old female at the residence. The officers became suspicious of both of these subjects’ explanation as to what the 16 year old female was doing at the residence.

As the investigation progressed, it was determined by officers that the female had been reported as a runaway juvenile from the city of Vacaville. Officers developed information that the 37 year old male identified as Derrick Jackson had been allegedly employing the 16 year old female to engage in acts of prostitution. Jackson was arrested by officers.

Officers served a search warrant at the residence in connection with the arrest of Jackson. Both Jackson and Cano were booked on suspicion of the following charges:

  • Contributing to the delinquency of a minor.
  • Possession of methamphetamine
  • Possession of obscene matter
  • Unlawful sexual intercourse with a minor
  • Solicitation of prostitution
  • Pandering for prostitution
  • Human trafficking a subject under 18 years of age
  • Lewd and lascivious acts with a child

Both Cano and Jackson were booked at the Concord Police Department jail and were later transferred to the Main Detention Facility in Martinez.

The 16 year old female was taken into protective custody.

Anyone with information about this case is asked to call the Concord Police Department at 925-671-3030. Those wishing to remain anonymous can call the Concord Police Department Tipline at 925-0603-5836.

Great job to the Concord Police’s SET Officers, who were responsible for rescuing this girl, and possibly saving her life.

I wonder what their brilliant explanation was…

The two guys, if convicted, should never enjoy freedom again.

Thank God for Concord PD, they did a great job. I don’t think people realize that there is a big problem in this country with human trafficking.

Lock the tweakers up!

5 anon September 28, 2010 at 1:06 PM

Hell, kill the tweakers!

6 Paul September 28, 2010 at 1:06 PM

They should hang the guys in public!!!!

OMG!!!!!!!!!! I know people who have lived on that street for over 30 years!!!!!!!!!!! I can’t believe it!

The disgusting depths to which some people will stoop to will always surprise me.

Runaway teenage girls have always been at risk for being forced into prostitution when they are out on the streets. They probably don’t think of this particular possible consequence when they take off; on the other hand, so many of them are enduring molestation at home, which is why they want to leave. Either way, they’re screwed. I hope this poor girl is able to get some counseling and get her life back on track.

Hey Mayor… Contra Costa Times is reporting this as a prostitution ring. Is there any truth to that or are they just exagerating things again? I don’t believe finding one victim constitutes a ring.

I hope the teenager is able to recover from this. I’m interested to find out how she met these older guys. I wonder if it was myspace or something along those lines.

11 Mr. Mayor September 28, 2010 at 1:35 PM

This was one case, it wasn’t a prostitution ring.

12 Jamie September 28, 2010 at 1:52 PM

wonder what “Possession of obscene matter” is … ? porn ?

13 Nikki P September 28, 2010 at 2:00 PM

OMG- I used to be good friends with this guy a long time ago. I haven’t seen him for about 14 years because of the “path” he took. I always think I will read or hear about someone I know on this site but geez never a story like this! 1994 Graduate from Nueva Vista HS

Good on CPD.

Biling, boiling, we again call for boiling.

This is why we should not cut SET funding. They do great work.

17 Radar September 28, 2010 at 2:21 PM

No one has asked this question nor does the story answer it. How long has the girl been held hostage and how long have they been at the house?

18 anonamom September 28, 2010 at 2:48 PM

I know, I’m on here (a lot) complaining about the city and the citizens turning a blind eye to what is going on all around them. I know this story isn’t “the same”, but it is too damn much like the Stacy Dugard story!

I’m sure there are some nice folks on that street, but just look at it. This is one case where at least half of those houses on that tiny ally of a street look like they need to be razed! Google and street view the place. Something’s wrong about that whole court.

19 My Name is Anon September 28, 2010 at 3:11 PM

anonamom- I think you mean Jaycee Dugard, and for the life of me, I can’t see the connection between the two stories. One was a runaway who turned to prostitution to get her off the streets, and the other was an 11 year old girl that was abducted by a pedophile while she was on her way to school.

You can’t blame the court. I grew up on Donaldson, and it was great. All the neighborhhod kids played together, and everyone looked out for one another. For something like this to have gone down, was because of one bad seed on the street, I’m sure.

22 Drvrdadca September 28, 2010 at 3:19 PM

Lots of firewood, next to the concrete yard, next to the motorhome probably worth more than some of those houses.

They were probably in the house with the high fence, (Phillip Garrido)?

Damn scugbag tweakers. How long til the tweakin family gets on here trashing us and defending the scum?

hang `em high & hang `em long

23 Concordanon September 28, 2010 at 3:36 PM

Good job, CPD. I’m glad to hear they didn’t just arrest the guy they came for, but also took the initiative to investigate what else was going on in the house. I never thought of that area as a hotbed of criminal activity. It’s kind of scary to know that kind of stuff can go on almost anywhere in Concord.

Jamie #12: They probably found PedoBear graphic novels.

Cut their balls off, they don’t deserve them anymore!

26 Anon September 28, 2010 at 3:57 PM

Isn’t this near Sharon and Ron’s place? Just sayin…

27 anonymous woman September 28, 2010 at 4:15 PM

Eew I knew that guy Mario from like 10 yrs ago. I was lucky enough to get clean and had always wondered what happend to him. I never knew about him helping pimp little girls though. Thats sick! Looks like hes still up to the same stupid stuff. Maybe they should lock him up and throw away the key. Some people there is no hope for out on those streets. I guess I’ll need to be praying for him.

28 moneypenny September 28, 2010 at 4:16 PM

My Name is Anon, they are BOTH victims. Don’t assume that because she is a runaway that she made the decision to prostitute herself. There is always an older, seemingly friendly and caring male who exploits a young girls body to put money in HIS pocket. They are usually too afraid to leave because the pimps threaten them and beat them up. In my mind the pimp is a pedophile as well as the lowest form of life on this planet…….

29 Anon September 28, 2010 at 4:47 PM

Is this that Mac Reeyno guy?

30 concord mom September 28, 2010 at 5:09 PM

This is MY worst nightmare for my daughters!! So sad!!

31 Atticus Thraxx September 28, 2010 at 7:00 PM

Sad that you can get customers for a 16 y/o prostitute. Civilization has a ways to go yet.

32 anonamom September 28, 2010 at 9:11 PM

Sorry I messed up the name. Doing two things at one time. No one knows yet how this girl got into this circumstance, but she did say she was being “forced”. We don’t know if she was grabbed off of the streets, but reported as a runaway, or just how long she’s been there until the whole story comes out. We also don’t know if she was the “first” to be held there.

Atticus, the sad thing is they could have probably made more money if she were even younger!

33 Antler September 28, 2010 at 11:15 PM

Is it just me……or is there less outrage in this thread against the perps than there is on the thread about the dog that died in an overheated car? Subliminally blaming the young girl? Is that what’s at work here? SICK.

34 G-Sphere September 29, 2010 at 8:07 AM

Antler, there is plenty of blame to go around and no one is condoning the actions of anyone, but the dog left in a car has almost no recourse and is totally at the mercy of his master. I guess with the story of the 16 year old, there are still a lot of unanswered questions.

35 ABOUT TIME September 29, 2010 at 10:03 AM

Well Well it about time that this piece of shit got exactly what he needs!!! this guy is a dad!! can you think of that? him a dad!!! i know for a fact that cpd has arrested him at least 6-7 times and have let him go with the history that he has. he has been in prison-(san quinton) realeased and him going right back to what he so-called a good life– well mr. good life- aka-mac reeyo — now aka child molester among other things. he is also know to cpd as a ci- but yet they kept letting him go!!! wow who’s corrupt??? with all that they knew about this person! but yet still letting him go!! blows me away!! like other comments here yea they should “cut his balls” off better yet let the inmates where is is now placed know what he has done and no doubt they will take care of his sentance-“child molester” and a so-called drop out of the “co co co” contra costa county gang! this here has made my day,month,year,and probally the rest of my life!! HANG THE S.O.B!!!! he deserves nothing less than “LIFE” in prison. i’m going to make a copy of the articals and send it to him in his “HOME AWAY FROM HOME” and congratulate him on his success. as for the other bag of garbage to the same to him!! i also am hoping they got his computer cause i know for a fact that he would video tape people in all types of acts w/o them knowing whats going on!!! on top of this he has a web site “recmode” staring mac reeyo” and whats worse is these web sites do not scrutinize any content as to what they put on there. look at you tube also,face book,my space,who’s know where else. they let anyone put whatever they want on there and possiblly ruining there lives let along put false assumision on there. and yet these places ceo are billionaires and they dont give a hoot as to what it does to this country’s people all there concern is “THE ALL MIGHTY DOLLAR” THEY SHOULD BE LOCKED UP ALSO!!! as far as some of these comments to each his own but some of you people NEED TO WAKE UP! it take only one to start a ring and especillay knowing he has done this for some time!! “ABOUT TIME” finally glad to see him back behine bars right where he belongs-forever i hope.
thank you to the higher power that has put him where he is and finally to contra costa county hopefully they will not let him out again!! as far as cpd-wake up to the real criminals quit letting them go!!!!

36 anon September 30, 2010 at 7:13 AM

Seriously he is a sick, disgusting dead beat and I agree he should have his balls cut off! He will b PC’d up in jail/prison for sure since he is a drop out and now this…if he was on the yard he would get killed for sure. Too bad. I hope he gets put away for good so he can never harm anyone else again. But rumors have it he is possibly an informent so chances are he will be released again.

37 Moneypenny September 30, 2010 at 3:22 PM

G Sphere, “the dog left in a car has almost no recourse and is totally at the mercy of his master.”

She has a “master” too, her pimp. This slime ball is a sorry excuse for a human being. He pimps this young girl and pockets the money. I’ll bet you that he has threatened her with violence and probably has raped her. I’d rather be the dog……….
