SOUTH FULTON, Ga. (AP) — Police in Georgia said they discovered a sex trafficking operation after chasing suspects who ran from a stolen U-Haul into an abandoned house.
South Fulton police officers found two adult women and one juvenile in the house on Thursday, their department said in a Facebook post.
Shortly after a preliminary investigation, police said they discovered the girl and one of the women had been forced into sex trafficking. Authorities did not provide the age of the girl.
“Two young women were saved from a life of misery,” Police Chief Keith Meadows said.
Police arrested Eron McCray on multiple charges, including human trafficking and rape. Two other men with him, Tanatrious Magee and Antonio Magee, were arrested on drug, firearm and theft charges.
“The three men arrested in connection with the trafficking and drug activity, will serve as an example of what happens when you come into the City of South Fulton attempting to victimize our young people,” the chief said.
It was not immediately clear if the men had lawyers to comment on their behalf.
