On Wednesday, the Summit County Sheriff’s Office and the Federal Bureau of Investigation teamed up on a raid at a local hotel that nabbed 18 individuals who were arrested on drug and prostitution charges.
The investigation, which includes possible human trafficking in the county, has included undercover operations where individuals were contacted through websites which advertised sexual services, the sheriff’s office said Friday.
So far, the investigation has netted 27 arrests.
Some of the charges include soliciting, various drug charges and compelling and promoting prostitution.
