GREENSBORO, N.C. — A High Point man has been arrested and charged with human trafficking of a child, according to the Greensboro News & Record.

Joseph Drayton, 56, was arrested Tuesday night after police said they received a complaint about prostitution and narcotics activity at a Greensboro motel room.

Drayton faces two charges of human trafficking of a child, and charges of prostitution, possession of drug paraphernalia, maintaining a dwelling for controlled substances and possession of controlled substances.

Police said they would not release further information on the human trafficking charges because juveniles are involved.

The suspect is being held in the Guilford County jail on $150,000 bail.
