NEW ORLEANS - Three New Orleans residents have been arrested in connection with an alleged child sex-trafficking ring that was apparently operating in the New Orleans area.

State Police announced the arrest of Kendrick Pigott, 29; Gregory Russell, 31; and Tiara Smothers, 20.

All three were arrested Thursday and booked in to Orleans Parish Lock-Up, according to State Police.

A spokesperson said the investigation began in September when a 17-year-old girl was recovered from a New Orleans hotel while engaged in commercial sexual activity. She had been reported missing from the Louisiana Dept. of Children and Family Services custody seven weeks prior.http://www.newnation.org/Images/2016/Pigott-Russell-Smothers.jpg
