A Winder man was arrested on a sex-trafficking charge on April 5 after a juvenile who had been reported missing was found alive at his residence.

Iran Lopez Burnett, 40, 120 2nd St., No. 20, was charged by Winder police with trafficking of persons for sexual servitude, felony probation violation and interference with custody.

According to a Winder Police Department incident report, police were dispatched to the residence at the Park Ridge Apartments after receiving information from an agent with the Georgia Attorney General Office’s Human Trafficking Unit that the juvenile was at the location with her “pimp,” Lopez. The agent was able to trace her IP address through Facebook messages with another individual.

Lopez was arrested at the residence and the juvenile was found in a bedroom there.
