FBI rescues 16 juveniles in Super Bowl human trafficking operation
FBI and local officials rescued 16 sex workers and arrested 45 pimps involved in a Super Bowl trafficking operation.
The FBI rescued 16 juveniles and arrested more than 45 pimps in conjunction with a child sex trafficking operation that revolved around the Super Bowl.
The FBI’s efforts, along with agencies from local law enforcements, planned the operation around an expected increase in human trafficking surrounding the Super Bowl.
“High-profile special events, which draw large crowds, have become lucrative opportunities for child prostitution criminal enterprises,” said Ron Hosko, the assistant director of the FBI’s Criminal Investigation Division.
The sex workers ranged from 13-to-17 years old, and some of them had been reported missing by their families. The Bureau is now working to provide food, shelter, counseling and medical care to the workers while also trying to contact the workers’ families.
