A human trafficking suspect was arrested and two victims were recovered in Montgomery Monday night, according to the Montgomery Police Department.

Theon Dontray Smith, 27, of South Carolina, was arrested and charged with two counts of first degree human trafficking.

It is the first human trafficking case that the Montgomery Police Department has investigated since the state law was passed in 2010.

MPD Chief of Staff, Bryan Jurkofsky says the department received a call from out-of-state parents, which is what triggered the investigation.

“They received contact from their daughter, who said she was in Montgomery and asked for a welfare check,” Jurkofsky said. “Patrol units responded and identified two minor females and one adult male.”
