Richard Krzemein, a Cleveland man accused of running a brothel out of his apartment in Brooklyn Centre neighborhood, truly redefines "working from home."

The 39-year-old advertised his brothel on backpage.com, a site notorious for advertisements posted by pimps and promotion of child pornography.

Detectives have discovered at least one woman who had sex with paying customers at Krzemein's residence. The home was raided Friday and detectives seized evidence including Krzemein's cellphone and a drug scale with "unknown residue."

As a result, Krzemein and the woman were arrested. His first court appearance is Tuesday, according to police records. He is facing charges regarding drug possession and promoting prostitution.
