BATON ROUGE - Sheriff's deputies arrested a man on Dec. 5 in connection with an undercover operation targeting human trafficking and internet prostitution at an East Baton Rouge hotel.

Deputies arrested Travis Santel Moore, 28, of Baton Rouge on suspicion of human trafficking on Dec. 6. Agents from local, state and federal agencies were involved in the investigation.

A sheriff's office spokesperson said Thursday the investigation revealed that the circumstances for the women's involvement in commercial sex trafficking included force, coercion, and pimp control.

Moore was given a $150,000 bond.

Note: An earlier version of this story incorrectly stated that the investigation was tied to recent raids at two West Baton Rouge massage parlors. WBRZ News 2 regrets the error.
