HOUSTON, Texas — Deputies with Harris County Precinct 4 Constable Mark Herman's Office rescued five human trafficking victims, four of which were juveniles, after receiving a tip to their Human Trafficking Tip Line last week.

On May 1, 2020, working the tip, deputies responded to the Super 8, Express Inn, and the Frontier Inn, all three located in the 16200 block of North Freeway, just outside of the northern city limits of Houston, Texas.

There, deputies located five human trafficking victims — four of which were juveniles and two of which were long-time runaways.

Police arrested Steven McGrough and charged him with compelling prostitution of a person under the age of 18 and trafficking of a child, prohibited conduct, in connection with the investigation.

McGrough was located at the Express Inn with one of the juvenile victims.

Investigators seized multiple cell phones at the scene for evidence.

All of the victims were released safely to their guardians, according to the constable's office.

"Further investigation continues to identify any additional suspects involved," read a statement from Herman's office.
