Conyers Police have captured armed robbery fugitive Calvin Smith. Police arrested Smith today around lunchtime after chasing him on foot in Olde Town.
Smith and Trayvion Clark ran from a vacant residence, Sgt. Kim Lucas said in a news release.
Code Enforcement officers Staton and King observed fresh gang-related graffiti this morning on the vacant residence. Accompanied by CPD gang detective Garcia, they were meeting with the homeowner in front of the house when the pair ran out of the back door. A foot chase ensued and a perimeter was quickly established to locate the squatters.
Cadet Shelton Ragland spotted Smith running out of the woodline and Officer Haygood placed him in custody. Officer Scruggs and K9 Eddie were able to flush Tayvion Clark out of the woodline and he was taken into custody as well.
Both were taken to the Rockdale County Jail. They are now facing multiple charges in addition to Smith’s original armed robbery charge that occurred May 24.
