RICHMOND CO., Ga. (WRDW) -- A man pleaded not guilty to sex trafficking charges Friday morning.

The Richmond County Sheriff's Office Vice and Narcotics Division went to the Motel 6 on Boy Scout Road in October after complaints of drugs, loitering and prostitution.

Investigators say training helped them determine there were two victims of sex trafficking on site.

Detectives were able to arrest 29-year-old Earthell Tyler, from Columbia, South Carolina, and charge him with two counts of trafficking of persons for sexual servitude.
