New Jersey man arrested for human trafficking involving St. Augustine Airbnb

A man from New Jersey is in custody after being charged with human trafficking, interference with child custody, and other charges related to sexual exploitation of a minor in a St. Johns County Airbnb rental. The arrest came after the victim’s parents called the police and reported explicit messages and photos found on the girl’s phone. The victim was contacted by a woman named Carol/Katty, who created an OnlyFans account in her name and connected her with the suspect. The case highlights the increased risk of human trafficking through online platforms and social media, and underscores the importance of education and close parental oversight.
