TOLEDO, Ohio -- State troopers in northern Ohio said a traffic stop led to the discovery of two women, one of them from Arizona, who said they were forced into prostitution.

Now a California man is in jail and charged with human trafficking.

Investigators said one of the women, who is from Mesa, broke down and asked a state trooper to help them during the traffic stop on the Ohio Turnpike Tuesday just outside Toledo.

Both of the women are in their 20s. The patrol said the other woman is from Vallejo, Calif.

A lieutenant with the patrol said the suspect advertised the women on the Internet and delivered them to sites around the country.

James D. Jackson of Sacramento was arraigned Wednesday on human trafficking and other charges. He does not yet have an attorney.
