In December 2013, the Windsor Locks Police Department, in partnership with the FBI Task Force for Missing and Exploited Children, developed information that a multi-jurisdictional prostitution ring involving underage children is operating in Windsor Locks, among other locations.
Members of the Windsor Locks police and the FBI Task Force initiated a collaborative effort to locate the underage child involved in this prostitution ring. After five days, a 16-year-old female was successfully located, identified and subsequently removed from Motel 6 in Windsor Locks, after being exploited for purposes of prostitution. Medical care and a safe return to the child’s home outside of Connecticut were initiated by the FBI Task Force. The investigation is ongoing.
In this case, the Windsor Locks police were able to remove a young child from a dangerous, unthinkable situation involving the sexual exploitation of underage children. Anyone with information regarding this type crime should notify the Windsor Locks Police Department and assist police in efforts to locate these children and return them safely to their families.
