Over 150 children have been rescued during a series of raids as part of a massive child sex trafficking operation.
The kids were found in the Charlotte-Mecklenburg area of North Carolina after a months-long investigation by multiple law enforcement agencies.
According to a press release by the City of Charlotte, many of the human trafficking victims had become involved in narcotics.
On Wednesday, the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department announced that “Operation Carolina Homecoming” had led to the recovery of 27 missing children between April 26 and May 7.
Most of the children had been missing for more than six months, according to police, according to a statement by the city government.
