Acting Tazewell Police Chief Walter Barrett says Smith was arrested Wednesday and Rose was arrested Thursday.
Witnesses reported seeing a child being forced into a car trunk on March 17. The reports prompted a search by local and state law enforcement agencies. Authorities determined that a 14-year-old girl was put in the trunk as a joke.
