The crackdown was part of a DPS Criminal Investigations Division effort targeting human trafficking.

Those arrested were booked in the El Paso County Detention Center and included:

  • Heriberto Ochoa, 23, of El Paso, Texas
  • Josue Ernesto Munoz, 21, of El Paso, Texas
  • Kayode Michael Young, 27, of El Paso, Texas
  • Fuqwon Jermaine Middleton, 21, of El Paso, Texas
  • Jonathan Rey Rivera, 46, of El Paso, Texas

As noted above, all five men charged are from El Paso.

In addition, DPS officials indicated additional arrests and charges are possible as a result of this probe.

"Agents were also able to identify and open investigations into additional suspects," the DPS statement said.

  1. Good job DPS! Need to tie these perverts to a tree, cut off their equipment flush with their abdomen so in the future they will need to squat to pee!

  2. At what point does a Sex Sting Operation becomes a Police Entrapment Operation? Like Judge Judy said “I can’t believe the police don’t have anything better to do than go around setting people up!”-Irate Judge Judy.
