Leesville, La — A Leesville man has been caught and arrested on molestation charges.
William “ Bill” Reynolds, 64, was arrested as the result of an investigation that was initiated on March 29.
During the initial stages of the investigation, Reynolds fled the scene of the incident and information provided to investigators indicated that he may be attempting to leave the State of Louisiana en route to New York where his family resides.
Reynolds has been considered a fugitive by the Vernon Parish Sheriff’s Office since the time of the incident and a “BOLO” (Be on the look out) was issued within the State of Louisiana and throughout all states on the East Coast to include New York State.
Information provided by a concerned citizen allowed investigators to locate Reynolds at a residence in a very rural area of Pitkin.
The owner of the residence was acquainted with Reynolds but had no knowledge that Reynolds was hiding from law enforcement.
Reynolds was booked into the Vernon Parish Jail on one count of sexual battery and one count of molestation of a juvenile. Total bond at this time is set at $ 25,000.00.
Additional charges are pending and Reynolds will be held into the jail until he is arrested on the pending charges.
