The two women who were passengers in the car were reported as missing and endangered, according to police. They were later transported to temporary shelters. 

Green was then arrested for allegedly trafficking in individuals for financial benefit, a first-degree felony. Green was arraigned Jan. 7 on that charge as well as a first-degree misdemeanor of corruption of minors in the court of District Judge Richard T. Thomas. Green posted a $15,000 bail and was released from York County Prison on Jan. 8, according to online court records. 

A preliminary hearing in the case is set for Jan. 20 before Judge Thomas.
