A Sampson County man was arrested Wednesday on human-trafficking and kidnapping charges stemming from an incident in August.
Arrest warrants that Raleigh police obtained – one on Aug. 31 and one on Oct. 10 – gave few details, but charged that Michael Dwain Gabriel Sanders, 36, of Newton Grove had “enticed” and transported two people to keep them in sexual servitude.
The victims were listed as being older than 16, but the charges did not say if they were male or female. They said one of the two was kidnapped.
Those charges cited a date of Aug. 12.
A magistrate set Sanders’ bail at $1,001,000, saying he was a flight risk who had jumped a window at one time to avoid arrest and had failed to appear in court when he was supposed to on an earlier charge of giving police fictitious information.
