BISMARCK, North Dakota — A North Dakota man is charged in South Central District Court with human trafficking.

Thirty-two-year-old Steven Ezeofor, of Wahpeton, was arrested last week at a Bismarck motel where he and a woman were staying. The woman told police she was a prostitute.

Authorities say Ezeofor had more than $13,000 in his possession and the woman had $3.

The operation was uncovered by Bismarck police who found an advertisement on an online classifieds website frequented by human traffickers and prostitutes.

Court documents do not list a lawyer for Ezeofor, who is charged with a Class A felony punishable by up to 20 years in prison. A preliminary hearing has not been scheduled.
