U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) is investigating this case, with valuable assistance provided by Topeka Police Department.

Evan H. Vollerthum, 35, of Naples, Florida, was arrested Monday for aggravated human trafficking and attempted commercial sexual exploitation of a child.

Vollerthum is in custody at the Shawnee County (Kansas) Department of Corrections on the above charges.

Every day, HSI special agents around the globe work to uncover, dismantle and disrupt human trafficking.

This remains an ongoing criminal investigation.

Recognizing human trafficking indicators is the first step in identifying victims and can help save a life. HSI encourage the public to report suspected human trafficking to its tip line by calling 1-866-DHS-2ICE or by submitting a tip online at www.ICE.gov/tips. The tip line is staffed 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
