“It is time that we put a stop to the trafficking of teenagers in broad daylight, right in front of our eyes.”
Fulton County – On February 16th, ATL Trafficking published a news article detailing the sex trafficking of underage girls at the Super Inn (301 Fulton Industrial Cir SW, Atlanta, GA 30336) and exposing the owner, Ishwar Patel, and his managers’ awareness of the situation.
Reliable sources say that between the hours of 4:00 PM and 2:00 AM, an average of 8 men per hour can be seen arriving at the Super Inn to pay for sex with these young girls and Continue reading
The A2C Budget Hotel (Formerly the Travelodge (and later the Travel Inn) of Six Flags), located at 4265 Shirley Drive, South-West, Atlanta, GA 30336, is the worst of the worst when it comes to sex trafficking on Fulton Industrial Blvd.
Years ago, Travelodge pulled its association with this hotel due to crime & poor management issues. (We do congratulate Travelodge for taking a stand!) At that time, it was downgraded to the “Travel Inn” but its association with sex trafficking did not diminish.

In other words, the APD has no jurisdiction, so Fulton County Police are on their own. Yet, Fulton County Police are severely underresourced there.
What is not so well known is that this area could actually be very easy to clean up! Almost all the sex trafficking on Fulton Industrial Boulevard originates in just 6 hotels and 4 strip clubs!
3 of the 4 strip clubs rent their space from the same commercial property owner. 5 of the 6 hotels are owned and managed by a team of 3 men who Continue reading
