FORT BEND COUNTY, Texas - A law enforcement officer and four gang members were arrested in a human trafficking operation called "Operation Freedom" in Fort Bend County, authorities say. 

In a press conference Friday, Fort Bend County District Attorney Brian Middleton said two juvenile victims and five adult victims were recovered in the effort. 

Three arrests for compelling prostitution, three for promotion of prostitution, 24 arrests of men for buying sex, 11 arrests for narcotics charges, three arrests for miscellaneous charges that included fraud, forgery and evading and failure to identify. Approximately $2,600 was seized in money and vehicles.

Houston Police Department officer Danny Le, who was relieved of duty, was shown among those arrested. He is charged with prostitution. Here is the latest on his case.

More charges and arrests are expected with further investigation, authorities said.
