BEND, OR -- Four people face charges following a multi-agency operation targeting suspected sex traffickers in Bend. Police arrested 23-year-old Rennell Buen (pictured), of Portland, for promoting prostitution and methamphetamine possession.
A woman was also taken into custody for prostitution and an outstanding warrant. The two others were cited and released.
During the investigation, police contacted a 19-year-old victim who they believe has been trafficked as a prostitute since she was 13. Bend Police are working with the Deschutes County Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children Response Team to get resources for the woman and help get her out of human trafficking.
