TEXAS: ICE Seeks Help Finding International Child Sex-Trafficking Victims

An accused international child sex trafficker is being held by U.S. authorities and they are seeking help in finding more of his alleged victims. Jason Daniel Gandy, age 37, is currently being held by the U.S. Immigration, Enforcement and Customs’ (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HIS) division.  He is charged with traveling overseas to the Philippines and Bali, Indonesia and across Texas to several cities as part of an operation of transporting minor children for commercial sex acts.

ICE agents believe there may be many other victims of Gandy’s operations and are seeking the public’s assistance in finding these victims. According to a statement obtained by Breitbart News, “Anyone with knowledge of the man’s unsupervised contact with minors should contact HSI at 1-866-DHS-2-ICE.”

The report obtained from ICE reveals that Gandy was stopped by immigrations officers in the United Kingdom during the 2012 Olympics after he and a boy arrived on a flight originating in Houston. According to the complaint, London officials became suspicious about a 35 year-old man traveling with an unrelated 15 year-old boy.  Both of them were returned to Texas on separate flights from London.

HSI agents greeted Gandy upon his return. An investigation revealed that Gandy operated massage businesses out of his home and used the boy to give massages.  Evidence revealed in court states individuals who were paying for the massages were allegedly allowed to fondle the child during the massages and the boy was required to sexually gratify the customers.

HSI encourages the public to report suspected child predators and any suspicious activity through its toll-free Tip Line at 1-866-DHS-2-ICE or by completing its online tip form. Both are staffed around the clock by investigators.

Information may also be revealed about this case or other cases involving human trafficking or sexual offenses against children by contacting the Breitbart Texas News Tip Line.
