WANTED BY THE FBI
Maribel Rodriguez Vasquez is wanted for her alleged involvement in a sex trafficking organization operating in Los Angeles, California. The organization smuggled a number of young women, many of them minors, from Guatemala into the United States. The women were allegedly held without their consent and forced to engage in prostitution. The organization allegedly used "witch doctors" to warn the victims that curses would be placed on them and their families if they attempt to escape.
On December 18, 2006, an arrest warrant was issued for Vasquez by the United States District Court, Central District of California, after she was charged with knowingly and intentionally concealing, harboring, and shielding illegal aliens in the United States for financial gain; importation into and harboring of aliens in the United States for purposes of prostitution; and aiding and abetting.
The FBI is offering a $10,000 reward for information leading directly to the arrest of Maribel Rodriguez Vasquez.
