(KGTV) - Are human traffickers really targeting shoppers by putting zip ties on their cars?

No.

A post on social media says a woman came out of a store after shopping to find zip ties around her windshield wipers. It goes on to say that human traffickers kidnap people while they're trying to get the zip ties off.

But this is an old myth that has been debunked by police around the country. They say there's no evidence the zip ties have anything to do with human trafficking.
