Roseville police say two men are under arrest for their part in a human trafficking operation, including a Southern California police sergeant. A human trafficking investigation in Northern California led to the arrest of a Chino police officer on suspicion of soliciting prostitution and having sex with a minor.
Sergeant Jason Bemowski was arrested Thursday for allegedly soliciting prostitution and having sex with a 16-year-old girl. Investigators say Bemowski is a 16-year veteran of the Chino Police Department and that his arrest took place while he was off duty at a residence in Redlands.
Roseville police are reportedly getting the full cooperation of the Chino Police Department as the investigation continues. Bemowski is currently on paid administrative leave and was last reported to be in custody on one-million-dollars bail, according to Chino Police Department spokeswoman Tamrin Olden.
The Roseville Police Department also says 24-year-old Anthony Harrison was arrested on suspicion of pimping and human trafficking and is being held at the South Placer jail on a bail of $1 million.
Anyone with information related to the case is asked to contact Crime Suppression Unit Sergeant Darren Kato at the Roseville Police Department at (916) 774-5000.
