Special Victims detectives on Friday charged Shawnveccheo Swain, 30, with trafficking an 18-year-old Nashville high school student for sex.
The investigation began after an MNPD School Resource Officer (SRO) received information that the student appeared in an on-line prostitution ad. Based on detail from the SRO, Special Victims detectives located the ad and associated the telephone number listed to Swain. That led to an Antioch motel where the 18-year-old was located in a room by herself and was brought to a safe place. During an interview, the 18-year-old told detectives that she was being forced to engage in prostitution by Swain.
Friday afternoon, Swain was riding in a Nissan Altima with an expired temp tag when the car was stopped by police at a gas station on Harding Place. Inside the car were 1 gram of crack cocaine, 8.8 grams of meth, 10 grams of marijuana, a shotgun and a rifle. Swain is being held in lieu of $145,000 bond on charges of trafficking for a commercial sex act, felony meth possession and unlawful gun possession.
