Tisha Campbell: Brownsville PD Unable To Validate Actress’ Claims Of Almost Getting ‘Snatched’ By Sex Traffickers

Tisha Campbell_ Brownsville PD Unable To Validate Actress' Claims Of Almost Getting 'Snatched' By Sex Traffickers

Tisha Campbell almost getting “snatched up” by sex traffickers in Texas has turned into an episode of “Law & Order: SVU.”

The actress took to social media on Friday (January 28) and shared an alarming story of how she was “set up” and given a number to call for a taxi, but when the car arrived, the men were sketchy, the car was filthy, and the backseat was missing.

Tisha says a sketchy guy jumped out and told her to “get in,” but she refused.

She captioned her post:

This was a video I sent to my brother right after it happened but I felt it important for ppl to be aware.

I need for EVERYONE to be overly conscious of themselves and their loved ones. As Tonidrivera says it’s SHOPPING SEASON where traffickers try to snatch ppl up!!!

If I wasn’t from Newark boyyyyy… If Tony Rivera hadn’t schooled me and my friends on what to look for, SH*T would’ve been real different. PLUS I don’t sound like I look.

Also I am thankful to the production for their concern and their understanding. What’s crazy is I went back to the front desk, the guy that gave me the taxi number wasn’t there.

I asked the woman where he was. She looks at the number and says, “why would he give you this number? This isn’t the normal number.”

It was a set up fo real.

TMZ reported a source close to the situation told them Tisha was in Brownsville, Texas when the incident occurred.

Over the weekend, the Brownsville Police Department released a statement saying they were unable to validate Tisha’s hotel stay and her story of almost being “snatched up” by sex traffickers.

The Brownsville Police Department is committed to providing proactive, professional, and effective public safety.
 
Regrettably, our department became aware of Ms. Campbell’s ordeal via social media and not through traditional reporting means as would be expected from a victim of an attempted heinous crime.
 
Upon reviewing facts presented by Ms. Campbell in her video, BPD Investigators quickly launched an investigation as such cases are not the norm in our city.
 
Through numerous interviews and reviews of security camera footage, we could not validate Ms. Campbell’s stay in Brownsville hotels nor any other claims made in the video.
 
The Brownsville Police Department takes human trafficking and incidents such as the one Ms. Campbell reported seriously and welcomes her to reach out to us to investigate the matter further.

The statement from Brownsville PD cast a shadow of doubt over Tisha Campbell and the incident.

A rep for Tisha Campbell confirmed she was staying at a Marriott hotel in South Padre Island, Texas – not in Brownsville, as previously reported.

Hopefully, Tisha reported this incident to the South Padre Island Police Department and provided them with the number she was given and called during the “set up.”

Sharing her story on social media to bring awareness to sex trafficking is good, but helping the police catch these predators is even better.
