A young girl categorized as a ‘commercially sexually exploited child’ was rescued after The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department received a tip-off that a massive underground party would occur at a vacant house in Palmdale.

The event was a violation of Governor Newson’s Coronavirus restrictions. Sheriff Alex Villanueva announced details of a police operation at an event on Saturday, December 5, 2020, in Palmdale.

The operation was completed with a multi-disciplinary team from various bureaus and units, including the Palmdale Sheriff’s Station, Human Trafficking Force, Operation Safe Streets Bureau, Aero Bureau, three patrol squads of the Mobile Field Force Personnel, and the Los Angeles County Fire Department.

During the operation, 158 individuals were arrested of which 116 of them were adults and 35 were minors. Six firearms were also confiscated.  

Sheriff Villanueva requested politicians to reconsider allowing the restaurant industry to re-open and instead target ‘super-spreader events’, (such as underground parties) which account for most of the Covid-19 transmissions.

Sheriff Villanueva stated: “We will continue to apply common sense to our enforcement actions and weigh the letter of the law with the spirit of the law. It is my firm belief that this approach is a more efficient and effective means to manage the spread of this potentially deadly virus.”
