Two people arrested on human trafficking charges in Montgomery County

News

Two people have been arrested in Montgomery County on human trafficking charges, after an investigation that started back in March.

Atuan Rogers, 34, and Dierra Thomas, 19, were both charged in July. Detectives confirmed that the suspects rented rooms in a Silver Spring hotel, and advertised services in an escort section of a classified advertising website.

Rogers is still in jail, but Thomas was released on bond. Police are concerned that more juveniles may be in danger of being trafficked.

If you have any information, you’re asked to call the Montgomery County Police Department at 301-279-8000.
