More than 200 arrested in Ohio anti-human trafficking operation

A firefighter with the Columbus Division of Fire was arrested as part of a statewide human trafficking operation that resulted in the arrest of more than 200 people and the recovery of 10 missing children. 

Attorney General Dave Yost is detailing the results of the operation, referred to as "Ohio Knows," during a briefing with several law enforcement agencies on Monday.

The operation, which spanned one week, led to the arrest of 161 people seeking to buy sex, three people seeking to buy sex from a minor and 50 people offering to sell sex. Additionally, investigators recovered 10 missing children. Those children have been offered services, according to an update from Yost's office.
