On April 9th 2015, the Halton Regional Police Service were called to an apartment building in the Town of Oakville for a landlord tenant issue. Upon arrival officers located a female inside an apartment that was being used as a bawdy house. Front line officers quickly recognized the indicators of human trafficking and the Human Trafficking and Vice Unit became involved.

The investigation revealed that the female was brought to Canada from China in October 2014 and forced to work in the sex trade. The victim had been forced to provide sexual services from the apartment and provide those proceeds to the accused;

Quang TRUONG. Police located and arrested Quang TRONG (44 years of age) of Oakville. TRUONG has been charged with the following offences:

• Procuring
• Procuring to provide sexual services for consideration
• Trafficking in persons
• Receiving material benefit
• Withholding documents
• Exercise control

Quang TRONG has been held for a bail hearing and will appear in Milton Court on April 10th 2015. This investigation is ongoing as police believe the accused may be involved in trafficking other female victims throughout the Greater Toronto Area. Police would encourage anyone with information pertaining to Quang TRONG to call Acting Detective Martin Dick at 905-208-0959.

Information on this or any other crime can be passed on to Halton Crime Stoppers at 1 800 222-8477 (TIPS) or through the web at www.haltoncrimestoppers.com or by texting “Tip201” with your message to 274637 (crimes).
