The Montgomery County Sheriff's Office, in conjunction with the Human Trafficking Rescue Alliance (HTRA) and law enforcement partners from across the region, recently conducted a two-week operation titled "Operation Labour" in the Kingwood area, which netted dozens of arrests and helped rescue some trafficking victims.

This operation targeted prostitution while helping potential victims of human trafficking. The operation took place from August 28- September 6, 2019 in the Kingwood area. Detectives and agents worked in an undercover capacity posing as "Johns" and "Prostitutes." Law enforcement also partnered with Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) who were instrumental in reaching out to potential trafficking victims, and providing them with support services during their operation.
 
During this operation, law enforcement officers worked tirelessly to apprehend those persons who were either providing illicit services or seeking the same. The primary goal was to proactively address prostitution and human trafficking activity in this community and surrounding areas.
 
Victims who may have been forced into providing illegal services through force, fraud, or coercion were also sought out. At least 6 victims were identified who requested victim services, one of which was a sixteen year old juvenile. A two-year-old child was also recovered from the vehicle driven by a female who was arrested for prostitution. The child was placed with family members.
 
"We will continue to send a message through enforcement actions, that we are not going to tolerate this activity in our communities. We will arrest and charge those who engage in this illicit act. We will also continue to identify those who have been forced into trafficking by rescuing them from their situations and connecting them with services to help with their recovery." ~ www.facebook.com/MCT XSheriff/
 
Sheriff Rand Henderson added, "The Montgomery County Sheriff's Office is proud to partner with law enforcement and the Human Trafficking Rescue Alliance in the fight against prostitution and human trafficking. These proactive operations will continue in an effort to deter individuals from purchasing sexual acts from women, especially those women placed into situations by force or coercion. The demand for illicit sexual acts must be addressed to stop human trafficking."
 
Of the arrests made for prostitution below (both johns and prostitutes), there were seven who had additional charges for drugs and/or weapons. There was also one male arrested for Promotion of Prostitution or "pimping" (listed first).

Some of those people look way older than their age. Living a hard life.

@WTF : And the first mug shot of the "pimp" is not very impressive - no gold teeth, grill, or pimp hat. He must be a low-budget pimp.

@Katzen :
 
They were all arrested in Kingwood. Putting area behind it is a way for law enforcement not to let out where the operation actually took place.

I see the young ladies under 25 and can't help but wonder what happened in their lives to resort to this. These older women and men promising them the world but ending up worse then they began. All I see is pride on the first guy and "pride always comes before a fall". I really pray he will quickly see and acknowledge his faults and stop trying to be someone he is not.
