Police say sex offender used fake baking company to lure young women to hotel

Posted:

A registered sex offender has been arrested by Beaumont Police and charged with fraudulent solicitation of female models.

A Beaumont police spokesperson told 12News that on Thursday, May 2, 2013, a detective developed information that John Brenton Daigre, 30, a registered sex offender from Jefferson County, was operating a fraudulent business to lure female models to a local hotel.

A news release issued Monday afternoon said an investigation revealed that Daigre had formed the business named "Pastry on Wheels" and had developed a website where people could apply for various positions. Daigre would then set up appointments to direct female applicants to a meeting room at a local hotel, where he would interview and photograph them.

On Friday, May 3, 2013, an undercover female officer agreed to meet with Daigre at the area hotel. Daigre had set up a meeting room and was conducting interviews. Backup officers monitored the conversation.  They said Daigre was found to be in violation of numerous provisions of his sex offender status and his probation.

Jefferson County Adult Probation officers obtained an arrest warrant for Daigre for Motion To Revoke Probation for a previous sex crimes offense. He was booked into the Jefferson County Jail.

Beaumont Police Officer Carol Riley said this operation could not have been done without the assistance of the Jefferson County Adult Probation Office and the Jefferson County Sheriff Department's Sex Offender Registration Unit.
