Deputy U.S. Marshals, assisted by local law enforcement officials, arrested an Indiana man charged with two counts of child molestation from Decatur County, Ind., Friday afternoon in the 300 block of Gregg Street.
Adam Carter Kelley, 32, was arrested by U.S. Marshals and deputies with the Howard County Sheriff's Office Friday afternoon near a car wash located in the 300 block of Gregg Street, adjacent to the Big Spring Area Chamber of Commerce.
According to Sheriff Stan Parker, marshals notified his office they would be in Big Spring Friday in an attempt to arrest another wanted fugitive.
“Before the marshals got here, we received a call from law enforcement officials in Decatur County, Ind., that Kelley might be in Howard County,” Parker said. “Since the marshals were already here, we shared our information with them and, using their resources, we were able to locate Kelley.”
Parker said Kelley was booked into the Howard County Jail.
“Decatur County is currently making preparations to pick him up and take him back to Indiana,” Parker said. “I expect they will be here to pick him up in a few days.”
Dusty Pearce, a deputy U.S. marshal out of San Angelo, said he's glad to have Kelley off the streets.
“This guy isn't someone you want to have in your city or on your streets,” Pearce said moments after the arrest. “We're glad we were able to assist in his arrest.”
