    Investigation reveals Albuquerque based sex trafficking operation

    BERNALILLO COUNTY, N.M. – A 16-year-old girl is back in New Mexico after authorities tracked her down in Phoenix, Arizona, where they say she was being sex trafficked.

    The Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Office says they were contacted by CYFD in mid-January in reference to the missing teenager. The office’s Ghost Unit began its investigation that led them to a well-known website where they discovered that the teen was in Arizona.
    Officials acted immediately and the teen was rescued with 24 hours of the initial CYFD tip.

    Through their investigation, officers were able to arrest 23-year-old Camara Cherry-Amos. She was identified as one of the sex traffickers who had forced the teenager into prostitution.

    Further investigation found that from February 2017 through January 2018, a sex trafficking operation based out of Albuquerque was being operated in five other states including Arizona, California, Oklahoma, Florida and Maryland.

    American Airlines agent saves 2 teenage girls from human trafficking scheme


    Law enforcement officials say that a quick-thinking airline employee, aptly named Denice Miracle, likely saved two teenage girls from a human trafficking plot.

    Miracle, an American Airlines agent at California's Sacramento International Airport, was working at the ticket desk on Aug. 31 when two girls, aged 15 and 17, approached her counter, according to KOVR.

    Miracle said the teenagers, who were trying to board a flight to New York, had a small number of bags with them, but no form of identification and no adult guardians.

    The vigilant employee began to think something was seriously wrong when she noticed that the tickets, both first class, were purchased online with a credit card under a name that did not match what either of the teens had provided.

    "It was a first-class ticket. It was very expensive. I told a supervisor, 'I'm going to call the sheriff. It just doesn't feel right to me,'" Miracle said.

    When deputies arrived at the airport, the teens admitted that their pricey tickets were purchased by a man named "Drey" who they met on Instagram.

    Apparently, the stranger told them that if they flew to New York for the weekend, he would pay them $2,000 to model in a music video.

    Authorities say they located "Drey" on social media, but after briefly making contact with him, all of his accounts went dark.

    "We attempted to look him up on Instagram," said Deputy Todd Sanderson. "Just a few minutes after our contact with him, he erased all of his profiles on social media."

    When Deputy Sanderson informed the teens that their tickets had no return flights, he said they became defensive before ultimately accepting what could have happened to them.
