Undercover Agents Net 42 Suspects in Human Trafficking Operation

Posted: Updated:

Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotic's agents took into custody 42 people following a four day investigation into sex trafficking in northeastern Oklahoma.

OBN spokesman Mark Woodward said the Human Trafficking Unit launched the investigation after learning that individuals, including minors, were being forced into prostitution in Tulsa, Rogers, Ottawa and Delaware counties.

Woodward stated that last week OBN worked in several cities and locations to target and arrest individuals engaged in prostitution. Woodward says follow-up interviews were conducted to identify minors, as well as adults forced into prostitution as the result of human trafficking.

Woodward says three women were identified as victims of human trafficking and transported to a shelter facility. He says 1 of them is only 15 years old.
