TULSA, Okla. — Quick facts:
- Tulsa police say they're seeing an increase in prostitution and sex trafficking.
- They say part of the increase is due to a newer kind of offender.
- A sergeant with the VICE Unit says gang members found out it was safer to deal in women than in drugs.
- They say it's even legally safer for them to deal in underage girls, because getting caught with a carload of girls won't get offenders arrested like a carload of drugs.
- This has led to the Tulsa Police VICE Unit teaming up with the Gang Unit to help identify people and make arrests.
