Sheriff Boudreaux announces human trafficking arrests.
Two human trafficking suspects are in custody in Tulare County jails following a 6-month joint investigation into a human trafficking ring in collaboration with the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department and the California Attorney General’s Office.
The two suspects in custody are Quinton Brown of Highland and Gerald Turner of Fresno. A third suspect, Mia McNeil, is outstanding and we are asking the public's assistance to locate her.
If you know her whereabouts, please contact the Tulare County Sheriff's Office at (559) 733-6218 or anonymously at (559) 725-4194 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The investigation began when a concerned Tulare County mother sought help from the Tulare County Sheriff’s Office regarding her teenage daughter who had run away.
As a result of countless man hours dedicated to this case, multiple victims have been identified. The majority of the victims in this case are juveniles from Tulare County where Sheriff Mike Boudreaux has set a zero tolerance for human traffickers. He developed a cyber-crimes unit dedicated to tracking down suspects who prey upon and exploit the innocence of our children. This unit has been successful in identifying and removing victims from the world of human trafficking.
Sheriff Boudreaux is excited and pleased for the collaborative law enforcement efforts in this case. It is a success thanks to the fantastically cooperative effort from the LA County Sheriff’s Office, the Office of the Attorney General, and the Tulare County Sheriff’s Office.
“To Californians, be proud of the law enforcement serving the citizens of this state because today is a win for the good guys,” he said. “Sexually exploiting young people for financial gain is a crime against humanity. We will continue our vigilance to aggressively seek out those suspects who endanger our children and who seek to use human beings for their criminal gain.” #tcso #tularecounty #tularecountysheriff #lasd #californiaattorneygeneral #humantrafficking #fresno #highland #sanbernardinocounty
