Man arrested for human trafficking
November 06, 2013, 05:00 AM

A Vallejo man was arrested for conducting a prostitution operation out of a hotel on Mitchell Avenue near the South Airport Boulevard strip in South San Francisco Monday, according to police.

Police contacted Shon Tinsley, 27, who was out on parole for a burglary conviction, during a compliance check and was found with a 20-year-old San Francisco woman who indicated she had been forced to work as a prostitute. Further investigation revealed that Tinsley was sex trafficking the victim and acted as her pimp. The victim was referred to county counseling services, according to police.

Tinsley was arrested for human trafficking, pimping, pandering and his parole has been revoked, according to police. He is being held in the San Mateo County Jail on $250,000 bail, according to police.

South San Francisco police have investigated four human trafficking cases this year alone and eight since 2011, leading to the arrests of 11 traffickers and the rescue of 14 victims, including six children.

Anyone who suspects human trafficking can call South San Francisco police at (650) 877-8900 or the National Human Trafficking hotline at (888) 373-7888 or text BeFree (233733).
