CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

Police in North Olmsted arrested a 13-year-old girl from California.  Now, that's sparked an investigation into sex trafficking.

The 13-year-old was a runaway caught in a drug bust. But, she told police a chilling tale of selling sex for money.

The girl said she ran away from California on a Greyhound bus when she met Keishay Clark.

She told police Clark talked about having her work as a prostitute and Clark would set up the dates through a pimp.

Investigators call Clark a known prostitute.

Now, Clark is being indicted on prostitution charges and more.

But, the case has developed into a human trafficking investigation.

The Cuyahoga County Sheriff's Department is leading the investigation.  They are looking into others that may have been involved.

That 13-year-old was sent back to California, but the focus now is how she traveled across country, got tied up in drugs and selling sex.
