60 people arrested in prostitution raid in Okla.

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - The FBI says 60 people were arrested in Oklahoma City and Tulsa as part of a 3-day law enforcement sweep targeting child prostitution and human trafficking.

The arrests were part of a national raid in 76 cities called Operation Cross Country VII.

Supervisory Agent Gary Johnson with the FBI in Oklahoma City says three children were recovered during the raid. 2 of the juveniles were 17, while one was 16.

Johnson says 1 of the girls was recovered during a similar raid last year in the Pacific Northwest.

Johnson says child prostitution is not a growing problem in Oklahoma City, but is a consistent one.

The FBI worked with the Oklahoma City Police Department's vice enforcement unit and Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics on the raid.
