Trinidad: TTPS busts child sex ring, Gary: “We have just begun”

Police rescued 17 girls, aged 15-17, from a business place on Ariapita Avenue this morning and Commissioner of Police Gary Griffith described the operation as “just the tip of the iceberg.”

Griffith told Newsday the business place was one of several where police found young girls held captive, and police believe they would have been used in a sex ring.

Griffith said they went to several places – including Westmoorings – to rescue the girls. He added that several people, most of whom were Asian, were arrested in relation to the discovery.
