Tip leads to arrest of 2 on human trafficking charge

JONESBORO, Ark. (KAIT) -Police arrested two people after receiving a tip of suspected human trafficking.

Officers arrested Tyler Sowell, 26, of Brookland and Olivia Deroeck, 26, of Jonesboro on March 10 on suspicion of trafficking of persons, a Class Y felony.

According to a probable cause affidavit, the two were in contact “making sales and setting up timing with a minor.”

The court documents provided no further details. Sally Smith, public information specialist with the Jonesboro Police Department, said it was still considered an “active undisclosed investigation.”

On Monday, March 16, a judge set bond for each suspect at $1 million cash or surety.

Sowell and Deroeck are both scheduled to appear in circuit court on April 24.
