On December 18, the Riverside County Anti-Human Trafficking Task Force (RCAHT) arrested Jose Moreno, 58 of Indio, and Eva Portillo, 34 of Indio, for human trafficking of a minor in the 81-300 block of Miles Avenue.
On April 15, the RCAHT received a tip from the National Human Trafficking Resource Center hotline regarding labor exploitation of a minor. During the investigation, it was learned a minor was smuggled into the United States under false pretense from another country. The minor was exploited via labor trafficking and debt bondage, according to officials. After several months of investigation, Moreno and Portillo suspects were identified as the suspect.
The RCAHT is asking anyone with additional information to contact Deputy Ernestina Contreras at 760-836-1600 or call anonymously at 760-341-STOP (7867) and reference incident R201060008.
Human Trafficking activity and tips can be reported to the National Human Trafficking Resource Center Hotline at 888- 373-7888.
The law enforcement component of the RCAHT is currently composed of the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department, the Riverside County District Attorney’s Office Bureau of Investigations, Homeland Security Investigations, the State Department’s Diplomatic Security Service, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Riverside County Probation Department, and part-time participation of the Hemet Police Department, Riverside Police Department, and Desert Hot Springs Police Department.
