Ronald Eugene Adams of Millers Creek has been arrested by Alexander Co. Sheriff's Officers on three counts of first-degree statutory sex offense with a child under 13 and 13 counts of indecent liberties with a child.
He was arrested last Wednesday (February 6) after a lengthy joint investigation involving Wilkes County Detectives and Investigators from Alexander County. The incidents leading to his arrest occurred in Alexander County between 2013 and 2014. Investigators interviewed Adams Wednesday. He was arrested following that interview.
Adams was placed in the Alexander Co. Detention Center under a $1.5-million secured bond. He was scheduled to make a first appearance in District Court today (February 11) in Taylorsville.
The case remains under investigation.
