The Genesee County Sheriff Chris Swanson announced a major bust of a sex trafficking operation. A county task force called GHOST brought down the ring with cooperation from state and federal forces. The task force GHOST is short for Genesee Human Oppression Strike Team. For several months the sheriffs department has been conducting operations that lead up to the announcement this week.
Even during covid and all the things that have happened around the nation, we have continued to seek out people that here to harm your kids, my kids, our kids. People that are pedophiles and predators that seek to harm those that cant protect themselves.Genesee County Sheriff
There have been 17 arrests so far in a series of stings that spanned months and involved several municipalities in the county. A missing child report lead police to a razor-wire surrounded barn where a 16 year old girl was being held captive for sex trafficking. Her ‘boyfriend’ was one of those arrested.
Seven raids have been conducted. Six of which were stings conducted by GHOST. People came to have sex with underage children and were arrested. People traveled in from outside and were met by a sheriff’s deputy and were instead taken into custody.
