West Side man was arrested when investigators found him in an Arlington Heights hotel room he was using to allegedly prostitute a 24-year-old woman, according to the Cook County sheriff’s office.

Gabriel Johnson, 31, of the 1100 block of North Leclaire Avenue, was charged with promoting prostitution and being an armed habitual criminal. He was also wanted on a warrant for unlawful use of a weapon, the sheriff’s office said in a news release.

About 7 p.m. Thursday, the sheriff’s vice unit learned that Johnson was profiting from acts of prostitution by a 24-year-old woman at an Arlington Heights hotel.

Eventually, when Johnson eventually arrived at the hotel room as officers were inside, he was ordered to the ground, and sheriff’s deputies took him into custody, recovering a loaded handgun from his waistband.

The 24-year-old woman was not charged. She was offered victim services through the sheriff’s office.

Johnson was scheduled to appear in bond court Friday in suburban Rolling Meadows.
