MARQUETTE, MI--   The Marquette County Prosecutor’s Office says a recent joint sting operation to combat human trafficking and child prostitution in the U.P. was an astounding success.

Multiple law enforcement agencies cooperated in the undercover operation. They included the Marquette County Sheriff’s Office, the Marquette Police Department, the Michigan State Police, the Upper Peninsula Substance Enforcement Team, and the Genesee County Sheriff’s Office.

Officials say more details about the operation will be released this week.
