Human trafficking and child exploitation is on the rise both nationally and within our State.  A task force of police agencies in this area have teamed up to address the matter locally.  The Montcalm County Sheriff’s Office has assisted neighboring agencies at several of these operations netting many arrests.  Last evening, an operation by the task force was held in Montcalm County.
Two men were arrested overnight when they came to the County intending to engage in sexual activities with underage females.  At the time of apprehension, admissions to their intentions were obtained and they were lodged.
