The operation spanned four days, with two taking place in Missouri City and the other two in Stafford. The operation targeted sex buyers and others engaged in the business.
“In only four days, five lives were saved,” said Fort Bend County District Attorney Brian Middleton. “Over 50 criminal charges were filed for crimes related to human trafficking, including prostitution, promotion of prostitution, and felony drug charges.”
Numerous law enforcement agencies from Harris, Fort Bend, Montgomery and Galveston counties, along with the Department of Homeland Security, partnered with the Human Trafficking Rescue Alliance on the undercover operation.
