Calvin Smith arrested

ROCKDALE COUNTY, Ga. ( CBS46) -- Calvin Smith, a 20-year-old man who allegedly used a teen as bait in a sex trafficking-robbery scheme, was taken int police custody Friday afternoon.

Code Enforcement officers in the area of Old Towne Conyers noticed fresh gang-related graffiti on a vacant residence. While officers and the home owner were meeting near the residence, two males -- Calvin and Tayvion Clark -- were spotted fleeing from the vacant home.

Officers quickly sprang into action and chased the two suspects. Smith was caught by an officer as he ran out from the woodline, while Clark was caught a short distance away by an officer and K-9 also making his way out of the woodline. 

Both are facing multiple charges in addition to those connected to the robbery scheme.
