DENTON, Texas (AP) Investigators say two dozen suspects have been arrested in a North Texas human trafficking sting related to sex and juveniles.
The Denton County Sheriff's Department on Tuesday said two 17-year-olds were rescued last week. The arrests happened in Denton and The Colony.
Officials say more arrests are expected in the case involving juveniles forced into the sex industry. Sheriff Will Travis says operations will continue to protect children from sexual exploitation.
Names of the suspects and further details on charges weren't immediately released.
U.S. Homeland Security worked with local law enforcement departments on the cases.
