bay area rapper arrested for human trafficking

A Bay Area rap artist has been arrested on human trafficking charges.

31-year-old Dwayne Brian Furgeson, who goes by the name of Luzion, was stopped early Saturday morning by San Rafael police for a vehicle violation.

Officers found an underage female in the car and began to investigate why she was with Furgeson. The victim gave information that led officers to believe she was being sexually exploited and trafficked.

Officers determined that Furgeson had known the victim for about three weeks and had transported the victim to San Rafael from the Oakland area for the purpose of prostitution. The victim was also being exploited on the internet.

The victim was referred to services through an advocacy organization and was reunited with family.
