Thirteen arrested in Murrieta PD and RCAHT Task Force joint prostitution and anti-human trafficking operation

Through proactive enforcement operations, Riverside County Anti-Human Trafficking (RCAHT) Task Force and the Murrieta Police Department are working to reduce future demand for sex trafficking by identifying and arresting sex buyers.

On Tuesday, September 13, Murrieta Police Department and RCAHT Task Force conducted a joint enforcement operation that targeted online prostitution. As a result of this enforcement effort, twelve males were arrested for solicitation of prostitution and one male was arrested for pimping, according to the Murrieta Police Department.

The Murrieta Police Department also contacted one adult female who was believed to be the victim of human trafficking and possibly being forced to engage in acts of prostitution against her will. The victim was referred to victim services for assistance while the investigation into her sex trafficking continues.

Anyone with information about sex trafficking is asked to contact Sergeant Roy Vargas or Corporal James Tompkins at 951-696-3615.
