The 48-year-old Brooklyn man allegedly paid $80 to have sex with the girls.

A federal investigation has broken up an alleged sex slave operation involving girls as young as 14 and 15 years old in the Houston area, ABC 13 reports.

Several people are in custody after agents raided Houston bars that doubled as brothels Thursday, according to feds.

An indictment recently obtained by ABC 13 accuses the suspects of running an underage sex slave operation since 1999.

The victims were women and girls from Mexico, according to ABC 13.

“I think most of you will agree that nowhere in the world, especially right here in Houston, in our United States, should any human being be trafficked for profit or used as a reusable commodity,” said FBI special-agent-in-charge Stephen Morris.
