BALTIMORE - A 31-year-old man has been charged in connection with a human trafficking investigation, Baltimore County police said.
Abudallah Hannibal Oakley, of the 1600 block of North Wolfe St., has been charged with human trafficking and related charges and is being held at the Baltimore County Detention Center on $500,000 bail.
Police said on June 20, a Baltimore County detective with the Maryland Child Exploitation Task Force was working as part of FBI Operation Cross Country. The detective received information that a teenage female that had been reported missing in Baltimore County was involved in an advertisement for an escort on a section of a webpage that is known for the advertisement of human trafficking and prostitution.
The detective, along with another task force member, located the advertisement, contacted the girl and scheduled an appointment. The girl told the detective that the "donation" would be $200. She arrived at the arranged meeting place in Baltimore County in a vehicle which appeared to be a cab.
Police detained all three persons in that vehicle, including Oakley and the missing girl. The girl told detectives that she had met the defendant two weeks ago and that he took her to his home in Baltimore City where he stated that he was going to place an advertisement for her online and that she needed to make them money.
Oakley, who the victim said was her “pimp,” allegedly provided her with condoms that she was to use with her customers and kept a large portion of the money that she made.
