The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation announced Friday authorities arrested 32 people in a Knoxville human trafficking operation.

The TBI said in a release two of the men, including a children’s minister, arrested in “Operation Someone Like Me” responded to ads for what they thought were girls under the age of 18.

TBI identified Knoxville's Jason Kennedy, 46, as the children's minister arrested for patronizing prostitution and human trafficking. Kennedy is a minister at Grace Baptist Church in Karns.

10News reached out to the church, but were told they had no comment.
