Accused Monroe County sex trafficker arrested


GREENFIELD IN – Stephen Higgins, wanted in Monroe County, was apprehended by Indiana State Police.

The Monroe County Office of the District Attorney previously sought public assistance in locating Higgins, 30, wanted for human trafficking and prostitution. He has been on the run since July 17, when he was last seen in a Pocono Hotel with a 19-year-old woman who detectives found to be a victim of sex trafficking.

Higgins is being held at the Hancock County Jail in Indiana, awaiting extradition.  He will appear before a Monroe County Magistrate at a later date.

This investigation is ongoing.
