Video from the FBI shows federal agents and local police officers rush into a hotel room after a successful undercover sting operation to arrest pimps and rescue underage prostitutes. In some cases the minors were advertising sex on the Internet to meet a john at a hotel room.
The feds and local law enforcement say they rounded up 153 pimps and found 149 underage sex-trafficking victims in cities around the country. Operation Cross Country is in its 9th year aimed at reducing the commercial sex trafficking of children in the United States.
Six of those minors were found selling sex in Atlantic City in casinos and hotels.
FBI Assistant Special Agent in Charge Brad Cohen said that often times the minors are runaways.
