COLUMBUS, Miss. (WTVA) -- A Caledonia man faces new charges as the investigation into sexual explicit messages he sent to an underage girl through a social media website continues.

Sheriff Mike Arledge says Kevin Ross Smith, 30, of Wolfe Road in Caledonia was arrested Wednesday night.

Investigators say the new charge is based upon communications with a separate underage female found while investigators were working an earlier case.

Arledge says Smith was arrested September 30 after he drove to a Lowndes County business to meet a girl he was communicating with.

Arledge says the girl had reported the messages to someone who notified them and the meeting was arranged.

Details on the Wednesday arrest were not released.

Smith now faces two counts of enticement of a child for sexual purposes.

Bond has not been set on the new charge.
