Innocence Lost Nationwide Initiative: Police Department Busts Prostitution Ring in Oxford

OXFORD, MISS (OPD) – On Monday, August 24, 2015, Santana Hervey was charged with promoting prostitution and had her bond set at $5000. There were 3 others subjects charged with prostitution. All four subjects were arrested Friday, August 21, 2014 as part of a joint effort to identify and rescue human trafficking victims.Hervey, Santana

The Oxford Police Department along with local branches of both the Federal Bureau of Investigations and the Attorney General’s office worked jointly on this case, along with the Oxford – Lafayette Metro Narcotics unit. During the investigation it was discovered that appointments were being made through an online site and the encounters were at local hotels at a pre-arranged date and time. Of particular concern was the possibility that minors could be involved.

“I want to emphasize the fact that this type of criminal activity brings more crime with it. We have documented cases that connect some of these people to narcotic activity, robbery, and assault,” stated Joey East, Chief of Police. “So often in cases of prostitution you will find human trafficking victims who are under the age of 18. We want to make sure that is not happening in Oxford.”

All four of the females arrested are adults, however this event was part of a larger mission to identify and rescue both child and adult victims of human trafficking.

Chief East remarked, “We are so grateful to our local branches of the state and Federal government for their assistance on cases like these.”

“Investigating human trafficking is one of the FBI’s top priorities,” stated Donald Alway, Special Agent in Charge of the FBI in Mississippi. “Our targets are those who prey on vulnerable adults, children, males, and females, and force them into trafficking for sex. Prostitution is a heinous crime that goes hand in hand with violent criminal activities, and is also one of the many avenues for human trafficking. Our goal is to rescue the victims, to let them know that they have a place to turn for help. Our partnership with the Oxford Police Department, the Mississippi Attorney General’s Office, and the Oxford-Lafayette Metro Narcotics Unit this weekend is a great example of an effective, collaborative law enforcement effort to address this fast-growing criminal activity here in Mississippi.”

“We typically think of prostitution and human trafficking as being a crime that happens elsewhere, but Mississippi is just as exposed as every other state,” said Attorney General Jim Hood. “The Oxford Police Department and the FBI did a great job investigating these cases and we appreciate our working relationships we have with them.”

Law Enforcement Combine Efforts to Bust Prostitution Ring in Oxford

OXFORD, MISS (OPD)  – Initial investigations and information gathering for this undercover task force began back in the winter of 2014. Oxford Police Department investigators gathered information concerning a series of criminal events that occurred over a period of time and worked to connect the incidents to electronic advertisements for prostitution.

The Oxford Police Department quickly contacted the local branches of both the Federal Bureau of Investigations and the Attorney General’s office for assistance on this case. With the three entities working together, progress was made and the initial operation on August 21, 2015 was executed, with the help of the Oxford-Lafayette Metro Narcotics unit.

“While four arrests may seem like a small number, citizens need to know that this specific criminal activity can be related back to domestic violence, assaults, robberies and illegal narcotic activity. It is not simply the exchange of money for sex,” said Joey East, Chief of Police. He added that, “This is just the first operation in an ongoing investigation that will continue until I am confident that we have done our very best to ensure the safety of our citizens so that our town continues to be the family friendly and retiree attracting destination that is truly is.”
