Police: ‘Vampire’ trucker kept sex slaves

A trucker who wore ‘vampire’ teeth kept women captive as sex slaves for months at a time as he traveled the country, the Associated Press reports.

Timothy Jay Vafeades, 54, is charged with kidnapping, transportation for illegal sexual activity, and possession of child pornography, and could be sentenced to life in prison if convicted.

Vafeades was arrested at a Minnesota weigh station after officials there noticed his passenger — Vafeades’ 19-year-old cousin from Florida — had bruises on her arm and a restraining order had been issued to keep the trucker away from her.
