Herman said four women who were arrested said they were victims of human trafficking. He said those cases have been referred to the Harris County District Attorney’s Office so that the women can receive the help they need.

Four other people who were arrested are accused of being pimps, Herman said.

Charges range from prostitution to possession of a firearm by a felon and drug offenses.
