2 suspects wanted in human trafficking investigation may be in GTHA: Niagara police

Niagara police have released photos of two suspects wanted in a human trafficking investigation.

The investigation began in July 2018 following a traffic stop in St. Catharines in which police say a man stopped by officers fled the scene. Police also allege the suspect committed a number of crimes, and a warrant was later issued for his arrest.

Then, in January 2019, police say the same man was identified as a suspect in a human trafficking investigation involving a girl under the age of 16. A second man was also identified as a suspect in the investigation.

Police believe both men initially fled the country but have since returned and could be anywhere in the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area (GTHA).
