In a response to a viral Facebook post about human trafficking at Bayshore Towne Center, Glendale police said last week that they have had no reports of such crimes.

The post police were responding to read:

At tonight's banquet a Detective from MPD spoke and she told us that Mayfair Mall and Bayshore Town Center are very popular spots for human trafficking. Girls as young as 12 are being snatched up and sold into prostitution rings. I thought this information is worth sharing. So be careful letting your girls go out alone and talk to them about this. Also, if you shop in or frequent these areas keep your eyes open, you could make a huge difference.

Police said on Facebook that while human trafficking is, “...a real issue in our country and you should always remain aware of your surroundings, we have had no reports of this at Bayshore nor are we currently investigating anything related.”
