New Jersey Police say a four-month investigation led to the “dismantling” of a human trafficking network and the arrest of six suspects.

Eleven female victims, including at least one juvenile, were smuggled into the U.S. from Mexico and forced into prostitution, according to police.

The investigation began in January when officials reportedly obtained information that a juvenile was being trafficked out of a residence in Trenton. Two female victims were found inside during a search of the house, as well as two suspects.

Police say one of the victims, a juvenile, was smuggled from Mexico to Texas under the belief she would be working in a restaurant.
