Oklahoma human trafficking suspect used fake identity for two decades to evade deportation, officials reveal

Feng Jiang arrested for human trafficking in connection with Oklahoma case.

Officials with the Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics say a man arrested in connection with a human trafficking investigation was using a fake name and birthdate for over two decades to avoid deportation.

Feng Jiang was arrested late last month in New York City on an outstanding warrant from the OBN.

“After being extradited back to Oklahoma earlier this month, a fingerprint analysis by Homeland Security Investigations determined that his real identity is Le Feng Jaing and revealed that he was issued a Final Order of Deportation in 2001 and currently has an outstanding Deportation warrant,” said OBN Director Donnie Anderson.

In October of 2022, the OBN says its Human Trafficking Unit received a tip that sex trafficking was happening at a brothel inside a home in northwest Oklahoma City. According to an OBN investigation, agents determined that from October 2022 to February 2023, approximately a dozen women were trafficked at the brothel. Feng Jiang and another man, Jian Lin, were identified as the people operating the brothel. The OBN says the investigation showed many of the clients at the brothel were managers and administrators of commercial marijuana farms.

In September 2023, the Oklahoma Attorney General’s Office Multi-County Grand Jury unit indicted Jiang and Lin on two counts each of human trafficking. Jiang was arrested on October 24th in New York.

Investigators say Jiang continued to traffic prostituted women in Oklahoma while living in New York up until his arrest.

Lin is still a fugitive from multiple Oklahoma warrants. He is also facing charges in Canadian County for a recent arrest linked to the distribution of the drug, Ketamine.

Anyone with any information on the whereabouts of Lin is asked to call the OBN Human Trafficking Tip-Line at (855) 617-2288.
