Three arrested after Houston teen rescued in human trafficking scheme in Louisiana

ALEXANDRIA – On February 1, 2021, Louisiana State Police, in conjunction with the Bunkie Police Department (BPD), Alexandria Police Department (APD), and the FBI-Alexandria Field Office, arrested three subjects for their participation in the human trafficking of a 15-year-old juvenile victim from Houston, Texas.

Earlier today, an officer from BPD conducted a traffic stop on a vehicle. As a result, LSP was requested to assist with an investigation when a missing 15-year-old juvenile was located in the vehicle.

Through investigative means, law-enforcement identified the juvenile as being sexually exploited and was being transported for the purposes of human trafficking from the Houston, TX area.

The investigation led to the arrest of 24-year-old Terry Williams of Kingwood, TX, 25-year-old Infiniti Williams of Kingwood, TX, and 21-year-old Areona Ardoin of Alexandria, LA.
