Tulsa police arrested a man for allegedly taking part in human trafficking.
A Tulsa police officer called an ad from the website “Backpages” and arranged to meet a woman at the Super 8 motel at 100 N. Sheridan. Police say a 15-year old girl met the officer and solicited prostitution, so the officer arrested her.
Officers providing surveillance saw a black Yukon Denali pass by them twice. Police say around the times the Denali passed by the 15-year old got a text on her phone saying police were outside. Police say the man in the Yukon matched the description of the man who rented the motel room.
Police found the man, Tarran Brinson, nearby and arrested him. Brinson faces one count of human trafficking and possession of marijuana.
