Two suspects have been arrested in a human trafficking investigation over the weekend.
In July, 2020, a 35-year-old female victim came forward to the DRPS Human Trafficking investigators with allegations that the two suspects procured her into working for them in the sex trade across the province, police said.
On August 27, with the assistance of the Ontario Provincial Police, both suspects were arrested in Belleville.
Donte Frivalt, age 24, of Hill Rise Court in Oshawa and Cody Butler, age 23 of No Fixed Address are charged with: Procuring Exercise Control; Trafficking in Person by Recruiting; Material Benefit from Sexual Services and Material Benefit Trafficking in Person over 18.
They were both held for a bail hearing.
