Police in Canton, Georgia, posted on Facebook a story about pulling over a vehicle because the driver was using a cell phone while driving. The female driver couldn’t produce an I.D., so police ran the vehicle registration and found out it was reported stolen in North Carolina.
A search of the vehicle produced a bunch of drug contraband and a “large amount of lingerie,” prompting police to bring in investigators who discovered the driver was 16-years-old and she was transporting the 13-year-old passenger to another state. Police believe the younger girl was a victim of human trafficking and kidnapping.
Let's say that again. She was being sex trafficked by a 16 year old girl!
They arrested the driver on charges including trafficking, kidnapping, and possession of a controlled substance. The victim was reunited with her family. Canton Chief of Police Stephen Merrifield praised his officers for their exceptional work that “forever changed a young girl’s life for the better.“
