Social media post prompts police response

LUBBOCK, Texas -

(Press Release)

Lubbock Police Department reports it has received several inquiries today regarding a Facebook post that seems to be making its rounds across social media.

It references women who are asking other women to join a bible study, but the post then implies that they may instead be part of a sex trafficking ring.

At this time, Lubbock Police received one call this afternoon, around 12:30 p.m., to the South Plains Mall by a caller who said these women were at the mall asking women to join a bible study group.

The caller gave our dispatchers a description and a location within the mall where the women were believed to be located.  

Our officers responded to the South Plains Mall, walked the entire mall, and were not able to locate anyone who matched the caller’s description, or anyone who was asking people to join a bible study.

The Lubbock Police Department would like to remind the public that if they are in a situation where they believe their safety, or the public’s safety is at risk, to go ahead and call the police department.

If you believe it is an emergent situation, we ask that you call 911, or you can always call our non-emergency number at 806-775-2865.

As we always say, if you see something, it is important to say something.
