MEXICO CITY – Seven adolescent girls were rescued and 14 adults arrested when police dismantled a prostitution ring operating at several hotels in Mexico City, the district attorney’s office said.
The investigation began in July with the arrest of Maria del Socorro Vazquez and Miguel Angel Lopez Reyes on charges of human trafficking, procuring, corrupting minors and racketeering, prosecutor Javier Ceron Martinez said in a statement.
Questioning of Vazquez and Lopez led authorities to the five downtown hotels raided last Saturday, the prosecutor said. The rescued girls, ranging in age from 14 to 16, were mainly from the states of Oaxaca and Morelos.
Ceron said police confiscated pornographic videos and hotel registers during the operation. EFE
