PORTLAND, OR -- A recent international crackdown on sex trafficking led to the arrest of 20 people in Oregon. The FBI called it "Operation Cross Country X." The sting resulted in the arrests of 239 pimps and their associates in the US, and they rescued 82 minors. 

 

In Portland, one child was rescued and 10 adults were cited or arrested for prostitution. Ten more people were arrested or cited in Eugene. 

 

This was the largest such operation ever conducted. Nationally and internationally, last week's investigations took place in hotels, truck stops, and a number of other locations. Officials say specific information on where Oregon stings took place won't be released to protect the integrity of future operations.
