Investigators say two dozen suspects have been arrested in a North Texas human trafficking sting related to sex and juveniles.

The Denton County Sheriff's Department on Tuesday said two 17-year-olds were rescued last week. The arrests happened in Denton and The Colony.

Officials said more arrests are expected in the case involving juveniles forced into the sex industry. Sheriff Will Travis said operations will continue to protect children from sexual exploitation.
