An Arizona man is behind bars on trafficking charges after a neighbor reported to police that something was "off."
According to Scottsdale police, Steven Hurry was in an argument with a woman outside his home when a neighbor witnessed it and reported that something was "off" to police.
Once police investigated the situation, the woman told them that Hurry was trafficking her. Hurry was taken to jail and is charged with sex trafficking, pandering, sexual abuse, aggravated assault, assault, criminal damage and disorderly conduct.
Police say Hurry and the victim had been living together since May. They were originally in California, where the woman worked as a housekeeper until Hurry convinced her to go with him to Arizona to make money.
According to police, they first lived in Tucson, where Hurry is accused of convincing the woman to allow him to photograph her for an ad that he planned to post in which she would be offered to others for sex acts.

"She described making $700 the first time for sexual intercourse in 20 minutes with an unknown male subject, and the defendant took the entire $700. After this, the defendant collected the victim's birth certificate, social security card and other forms of ID and credentials and secured them in a box," police said in the court documents obtained by Fox News.
Police say the victim was forced to have sex with men for money and, if her money was short, he would beat her. In November, they moved to Scottsdale, where they lived at the Roadway Inn.
"The defendant created and posted ads containing the victim's photographs and advertising sex in the exchange of money, which included $350 per hour for full sex or a quick visit, 15 minutes, for $120," police wrote.
According to police, Hurry recorded the sexual encounters, which took place four to six times a week, and saved them on a hard drive.
