UPPER MARLBORO, Md. (WJLA) - Three people have been indicted in a human trafficking enterprise which operated out of various Prince George’s County hotels and involved more than 40 victims, officials said Tuesday.
Officials say the victims are as young as "in their teens."
Maryland Attorney General Brian Frosh announced the case along with Prince George’s County State’s Attorney Angela Alsobrooks and Prince George’s County Police Chief Hank Stawinski in Baltimore.
According to authorities, the trafficking took place over a period of two to three years. The three co-conspirators indicted allegedly lured victims in, and then forced them into prostitution.
