“Over the past several years, we have seen gangs and what were formerly exclusively drug conspiracies expand into human trafficking to fund their organizations," Drake said. "We have the legal tools to take the organizations apart, and need the public’s help.
If you see something, say something. The Polaris Hotline, 1-888-3737-888, is available 24 hours a day to receive tips.”
“Human trafficking is a heinous crime, akin to modern-day slavery,” said acting Atlanta HSI Special Agent in Charge Gregory L. Wiest. “These significant sentencings should serve as a grave warning that HSI special agents and our law enforcement partners, like the North Charleston Police Department, will use our full investigative resources to holding criminals accountable.”
