Also on Aug. 18, John Edward Massengill, 62, from Baldwyn was arrested and charged with human trafficking of a minor, and child exploitation. His bond has been set at $200,000.

“The Human Trafficking Unit of the Mississippi Bureau of Investigation is continuing to execute
operations to identify and remove these criminals from our communities and protect those who are
vulnerable and victims of human trafficking,” said Commissioner Sean Tindell. “Great job to all
who had a hand in this operation.”
