Feds nab suspected human trafficker in Connecticut casino

A suspected human trafficker who recently was profiled on "America's Most Wanted" was arrested at a Connecticut casino, federal authorities said in January.

An Soon Kim, 52, was arrested by Immigration and Customs Enforcement special agents on the floor of the Mohegan Sun Casino in Uncasville.

An arrest warrant had been issued for Kim, alleging she engaged in a wide-ranging human trafficking ring operating throughout the northeastern United States, the agency said in a news release.

Kim faces charges including conspiracy to engage in human trafficking, and conspiring and transporting woman across state lines for the purposes of prostitution, as well as trafficking illegal aliens, the agency said.

The immigration agency's homeland security investigations agents went to the casino on a tip that Kim had been seen there. She had more than $17,000 on her at the time of her arrest, the agency said.

She made her initial court appearance January 11, waiving her right to hearings, the agency said. She will be transferred to New York to face the charges against her.

"I am pleased that my agents in Hartford were able to apprehend this fugitive," said Bruce M. Foucart, special agent in charge of the agency's homeland security investigations in Boston. "... Working with our law enforcement partners, which include the Connecticut State Police Casino Unit and the Mohegan Sun Casino authorities, we were able to track down this fugitive, who will face charges in New York."
