Bellevue police have arrested two suspects in a sex trafficking case that involved a girl as young as 15.

Documents WOWT 6 News obtained show that 19-year-old Kylie Ray and 19-year-old Branden Felt have been arrested. Ray was taken into custody Tuesday in Sarpy County for felony offense of human trafficking. Felt was arrested in Council Bluffs and booked into the Pottawattamie County Jail for felony offense of human trafficking.

Investigators believe the two ran the operation out of room number seven of the Offutt Motor Court Hotel, just across the street from the Offutt Air Force Base.

It's alleged that the 15-year-old victim was involved in the sex trafficking for two months under the influence of meth.

WOWT 6 News spoke with the young victim’s father. According the report, the teen victim told her mother that she had been using the website BackPage.com and was charging up to $300 a night.

Investigators collected the sheets and the bedding in the hotel room for later testing. According to the report, they found a pipe at the scene that tested positive for methamphetamines.
