Human Trafficking Case at Motel?

By Bill O'Neil

A report of a man stealing televisions from a motel leads police to what may be a human trafficking ring.  

The call came in early Wednesday Morning--officers were told a man armed with a shotgun was stealing tv's from rooms at an Econolodge on Vance Jackson--near IH-10. 

"When officers arrived, they located a suspect and were able to detain him. They also located a weapon that was reported int he call" said Officer Roger Zuniga with the San Antonio Police Department. He told 550 KTSA News several women were also found with the man. 

"While speaking with the demales, it was discovered the suspect in this case may have been forcing the women in to prostitution" Zuniga said.  

All involved were taken in for questioning, as investigators try to determine exactly what was happening.
