Florida Woman Wanted On Sex Trafficking Charges

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — The Federal Bureau of Investigation says it’s looking for a 21-year-old woman who allegedly engaged in the commercial sex trafficking of two 14-year old girls.

In a statement released Thursday, FBI officials said a warrant for Keosha Renee Jones of St. Petersburg was issued Monday.

Officials say Jones might have left St. Petersburg to avoid arrest and might be in Miami. She also has ties to Port St. Lucie.

Court records say Jones posted nude pictures of the girls to http://www.backpage.com, a classified ad site. Then she made them perform sex acts at motels in Pinellas County. Jones and another suspect kept the cash.

Authorities say the girls were runaways and told detectives they thought Jones would kill them if they didn’t make money.
