ATLANTA — A teenage girl is free and several accused gang members are under arrest after authorities busted an alleged sex trafficking operation.

Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp, GBI Director Vic Reynolds and Attorney General Chris Carr announced the details of the yearlong operation on Tuesday.

According to the GBI, the Albany Police Department received a report about the rape and commercial sexual exploitation of a 16-year-old girl. The victim, who was able to escape, told authorities that she had been trafficked for nearly two months from June through August 2019 in Albany.
