Police arrest 13 people in connection with a human trafficking operation in Southern California.
On Monday, the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department said the men were detained last week in Pomona.
This comes after a joint task force conducted an undercover operation into the alleged ring along a street that’s known as an active area for human trafficking.
12 of the men were adults who solicited undercover agents for sex acts.
Another man was arrested on felony charges of pandering after attempting to recruit a sheriff’s deputy to work as a prostitute.
