A Kern County teenager was rescued in San Bernardino and was found to be involved in  commercialized prostitution and a victim of human trafficking.

The 15-year-old victim's mother told San Bernardino Police Officers that her daughter was "in distress" in San Bernardino. The victim was a confirmed runaway from Kern County, officials said.

The San Bernardino County Human Trafficking Task Force and SBPD identified Riverside resident Adrien Michael Jamison as the victim's trafficker.

On Tuesday, Jamison, 37, was arrested in the area of Crescent and 6th Street in San Bernardino. 

Jamison faces multiple felony charges related to pimping, pandering, sexual exploitation of a minor, and human trafficking. His bail is set at $150,000.

Officials said the victim was reunited with her mother.
