The Pottsville Police have commented on a social media post that has been spreading across Facebook the past few days.
According to the post that was shared hundreds of times on Facebook, it stated that “multiple cars were marked by sex traffickers” in the CVS parking lot in Pottsville.
The post also stated that Police were looking at the cars stating they were “marked”.
