The investigation took several weeks to conduct and the task force recovered a 13- and a 16-year-old girl.
Because of the sensitive nature of the investigation, which is still ongoing, the sheriff’s department isn’t releasing any other details.
Between June 19-21, 2014, the Racine Human Trafficking Task Force participated in Operation Cross County VIII, which combined Federal, State, and Local Law Enforcement agencies with the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children. During this Operation, 12 pimps were arrested and 6 juveniles were recovered across the entire state of Wisconsin. Of those 12 pimps, 5 of them were arrested in the Racine and Kenosha.
