At least 23 people have been arrested after an undercover investigation into human trafficking in Mississippi, according to WJTV.
According to WJTV, “Clinton Police and the Hinds County Sheriff’s Department say there are multiple charges ranging from prostitution, procuring the services of a prostitute, drug possession and enticing a child for sexual purposes.
“According to investigators, suspicious online activity indicated people were traveling to Clinton to commit these crimes. While authorities say Clinton isn’t necessarily the hub of the activity, the town’s location along I-20, a major thoroughfare for trafficking, means law enforcement is particularly vigilant about the opportunity for this type of activity.”
In addition to arrests from Mississippi, people were arrested in Oklahoma, Michigan, Florida and Virginia.
