On Monday, Auburn police arrested and charged city residents Laquinta Shamon Tarbert, 35, and Courtney Cortez Morgan, 31, with first-degree human trafficking in connection with the October kidnapping of a 13-year-old girl.
The 13-year-old girl left the facility and was picked up by "several unknown males" in a vehicle, police said. They allegedly took her to a residence in Auburn, held her against her will and sexually assaulted her.
According to a release from the Auburn Police Division, Tarbert and Morgan were developed as suspected accomplices in the case and the two were arrested at an Auburn residence.
They were transported to the Lee County Detention Center where they are each being held on a $100,000 bond.
