Data Gathering of Suspects in Human Trafficking

The BCA is putting in a lot of effort with local law enforcement to acquire more data and develop a more compelling case against the suspects. To support and aid any prospective victims who may have been saved during the operation, the agency is also liaising with numerous groups and agencies.

Agents working undercover talked to the accused online while posing as kids or sex buyers. They were detained after showing up at the agreed-upon meeting location and were lodged in the Ramsey County Jail. According to the BCA announcement, charges are anticipated to be filed in the upcoming days.

Due to their alleged attempts to entice a kid into prostitution, ten of the accused might be charged with a felony. Promoting prostitution could result in felony charges. Four female victims of trafficking had their cases withdrawn.
