Last week, members of the Irvine Police Department’s Special Investigations Unit (SIU) and the Orange County Human Trafficking Task Force (OCHTTF) conducted an undercover operation at a local hotel after receiving information about an adult female potentially being trafficked for commercial sex work.

When the male and female arrived at the location, the female was detained and safely removed from the situation.

The male, 33-year-old Winston Jones from Los Angeles, was arrested for multiple human trafficking related charges, including pimping and pandering.

The OCHTTF is comprised of officers from several OC agencies, including IPD.

This case highlights the important work the Irvine Police Department and their partners do to hold perpetrators accountable and help victims emerge from crisis by providing them with the appropriate resources.
