Tulsa police used a website to arrest a man on suspicion of human trafficking.

Ronald Spivey was arrested on Tuesday night. The police report said a female police officer pretending to be 17 set up an undercover sting on the website backpage.com. That site is commonly used by prostitutes to advertise their services.

The report said over several days the officer and Spivey exchanged text messages and Spivey wanted to take her to Florida or Las Vegas to make money.

Police arrested Spivey when he went to meet the officer. His bond is $200,000.

Let's just call human traffickers what they really are...slave holders, and they don't seem to see anything wrong with that.

In other news it states that Spivey and his accomplice are from OKC courtesy of reports from DLM
