Police said they hope the arrests will deter others from becoming involved in human trafficking.

“We hope by publishing these suspects' photos, we will raise awareness of the issue that is human trafficking and put the community on notice that we will no longer tolerate these crimes in our neighborhoods,” said HPD Vice Division Captain James Dale.
