A 14-year-old girl, was among 22 fe­males de­tained at a ‘Se­cret Sun­day’ pool par­ty bust­ed by of­fi­cers of the Spe­cial Op­er­a­tions Re­sponse Team (SORT) af­ter mid­night on Sun­day.

She is believed to be the victim of human trafficking.

They were found in a house at Chan­cel­lor Heights, Up­per La­dy Chan­cel­lor Road, St Ann’s in Port-of-Spain.

Nine­teen of them are said to be Venezue­lan na­tion­als.

Reports reveal that a 37-year-old woman from West­moor­ings who is be­lieved to be the main sus­pect was de­tained for ques­tion­ing but was lat­er re­leased.

A Val­sayn busi­ness­man and his son who were both de­tained in the raid are ex­pect­ed to be charged for the pos­ses­sion of a firearm and am­mu­ni­tion. They were among 20 men detained.

A re­volver was found on the scene of the raid to­geth­er with nar­cotics and a large amount of cash.

Po­lice said most of the women had no iden­ti­fi­ca­tion on them and were en­gaged in lewd danc­ing, pos­si­ble pros­ti­tu­tion and child en­dan­ger­ment.

Just af­ter mid­night on Sun­day, act­ing on in­tel­li­gence, SORT of­fi­cers con­duct­ed a sting op­er­a­tion at the house where the women and the 20 men were ar­rest­ed.

The 14-year-old girl was placed in the cus­tody of the Chil­dren’s Au­thor­i­ty and po­lice say the women will be trans­ferred to the Immigration Department for pro­cess­ing and pos­si­ble de­por­ta­tion.
