22 Arrested In Sex Sting

During the past three months, the Washington County Sheriff's Office and law enforcement partners have arrested 22 men during two missions intended to proactively combat human trafficking in Washington County.

The Washington County Sheriff's Office, in partnership with the Portland Police Bureau's Sex Trafficking Unit, the Forest Grove Police Department and the Washington County District Attorney's Office, announces the arrest of 22 men during two separate missions the past three months.

The stated goal of these missions is to break a link in the chain of human trafficking by enforcing state and federal laws and developing intelligence on those trafficking victims in Washington County.

Sheriff Pat Garrett reminds us that "human trafficking is a terrible reality in our community. Joined by our wonderful public safety partners, we are committed to continue interdiction efforts to rescue victims and hold accountable all those who perpetuate these crimes."
