A “traffic investigation” in Toronto earlier today (Sept. 1) has led to the arrest of a Mississauga man who’s now facing a half-dozen charges related to the human trafficking of a female in Peel.

Peel Regional Police say their counterparts in Toronto came across a man during a “traffic investigation” who was wanted on an outstanding warrant.

Police didn’t elaborate as to whether the man was arrested during a traffic stop or a crash investigation, or under other circumstances.

Investigators with Peel’s Specialized Enforcement Bureau–Vice Unit subsequently charged the man with a number of offences related to a human trafficking investigation involving a female in Peel.

In June, police in Peel began looking into allegations of a female being taken advantage of in the sex industry throughout Mississauga and Brampton.

The allegations indicate that a man had exercised control over aspects of the victim’s life and profited financially from it.

Edder Boursiquot, 33, of Mississauga, is charged with trafficking in persons, receiving benefit resulting from (trafficking in persons), material benefit from sexual services, exercise control, procuring and advertising sexual services.

He made his first court appearance today in Brampton.

Investigators believe there may be additional victims, particularly in the GTA.

Anyone with information is asked to call police at 905-453-2121, ext. 3555, or Peel Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
