A massive prostitution ring centered in San Diego was busted today with the indictment of 17 people in California, Arizona and New Jersey, according to KUSI News.

Police and FBI agents conducted the raids, putting state and federal agencies to work on California criminals instead of its citizens.

The sex trafficking operation spanned 46 cities in 23 states, luring the ladies with lucrative lifestyles but sending them into conditions likened more to slavery than to luxury.

The gang, called “BMS,” is based in San Diego’s gentrified North Park neighborhood. It recruited the ladies from social media as well as from El Cajon Boulevard. Originating in the 1990s, the gang was known to brand, bar code, and tattoo the ladies, and trade them among gang members.

Initial court appearances began today in San Diego.
