WILMINGTON, N.C. (AP) - Wilmington police have arrested two men and charged them with human trafficking and kidnapping in connection with the reported abduction of two North Dakota sisters.

Police department spokeswoman Linda Rawley said 22-year-old Jeremy Dean Moots of Edmond, Oklahoma, and 28-year-old Justin Angermeier of Cameron, Missouri, are each charged with human trafficking, involuntary servitude, second-degree kidnapping and contributing to the delinquency and neglect of a juvenile.

Rawley said the men were jailed after police found a 15-year-old girl and a 16-year-old girl at a local motel. She said the girls told detectives they were being held against their will and forced to work for a Missouri company. They are now in protective custody.

Both men are jailed under $350,000 bond apiece. It’s not known if they have attorneys.
