[ISP] Man Arrested for Human Trafficking
Start Date: 5/7/2014Start Time: 12:00 AM
End Date: 5/7/2014
Entry Description
Hancock Co., IN- A traffic stop late yesterday morning by an observant trooper has landed a man from Honduras in jail and another facing deportation.

Yesterday morning, at approximately 11:15 a.m., Trooper Matt Wilson of the Indiana State Police Interdiction Unit stopped a 2002 Toyota Tacoma EB on I-70 at the 96 mm for a traffic violation. During the course of the stop Trooper Wilson found inconsistencies in the stories of the two adult males and two juveniles that were in the vehicle. Further investigation revealed that the two juveniles, approximately 12 and 13 years old, were being held against their will and were being transported to Columbus, Ohio to work off a debt that their family owed to unnamed subjects in Mexico.

The Department of Homeland Security Investigations were called to the scene and assisted with the investigation. The two juveniles were placed in the custody of child protective services.

Romulo Molina, 26, of Honduras was arrested and charged with human trafficking, a Class B Felony. He was transported to the Hancock County Jail without incident. The second male was released to the Department of Homeland Security Investigations and will face deportation.
