Police in Michigan say that dozens of people have been arrested in a multi-phase human trafficking bust, WJBK-TV reports.
Officials in the city of Warren say that 46 people, 25 women and 21 men were arrested after a sting involving members of the department’s special investigations unit.
The bust was the second phase of “Operation Crusade,” which also resulted in the arrests of 35 others in May.
This most recent sting resulted in 31 felony charges and 72 misdemeanor charges. Some of the women arrested are expected to be charged with prostitution, but authorities say those charges will be dropped if evidence shows they are victims of sex trafficking.
Most of the arrests from the May operation have resulted in convictions.
