Despite initial concerns raised by Langston Proper’s videos, the occupants were found to be neither in distress nor tied up.

According to a spokesperson from the Gwinnett County Police Department, the families explained that they were relocating from Alabama to Maryland for new job opportunities. The truck contained their personal belongings, and the individuals appeared healthy and cooperative during the encounter with law enforcement.

The spokesperson added,

“The truck driver was cited for allowing passengers to ride in the back without seatbelts.”

The occupants were then dropped off at a local business to arrange alternative transportation to Maryland.

Langston Proper’s videos, initially posted on June 21, quickly gained traction on social media, amassing thousands of views and prompting many users to suspect human trafficking.
