Miami-Dade State Attorney Katherine Fernandez Rundle announced that today, police officers working as a part of the State Attorney`s Office Human Trafficking Unit, together with officers from the City of Miami Police Department SWAT Team, North Miami Police Department, Miami-Dade County School Board Police Department, Miami-Dade Police Department and the FBI served a search warrant at 2100 Sans Souci Blvd, Apartment A1509, North Miami, Florida in connection with a Human Trafficking investigation involving attempts to lure into prostitution two high school girls. Due to concerns about possible firearms at the premises, the City of Miami Police Department SWAT Team became involved. Ultimately, David Llama Lopez (DOB 05/13/1967) peacefully surrendered and will most likely be charged with a variety of crimes:
- Human Trafficking (commercial sexual exploitation of a minor under 18 years of age in violation of Florida Statute 787.06(3)(g)
Procuring person under 18 years of age for prostitution in violation of Florida Statue 796.03,
Contributing to the Delinquency of a Minor in violation of Florida Statue 827.04
and Interference with Child Custody in violation of Florida Statute 787.03
At this moment in time, the charging process is still ongoing.
As a direct result of creating our Human Trafficking Unit, our police agencies are now fully mobilized to attack the problem of human trafficking, something that existed just below the radar for far too long, commented Miami-Dade State Attorney Katherine Fernandez Rundle. Those who think they can make a living by selling our children to the highest bidders had better think again. Our community is united with our police departments to end this awful, awful trade.
