Sheriff’s detectives arrested an Oceano man on suspicion of child molestation in the culmination of an investigation over the course of several weeks.
According to Sheriff’s spokesman Tony Cipolla, on Feb. 25, they received a report of suspected child molestation at a home in Oceano.
The investigation, Cipolla said, revealed that the suspect in the case allegedly had contact with the female victim the week before at his home in Oceano.
“Over the course of several weeks,” Cipolla said, “detectives completed a comprehensive investigation, which led to obtaining an arrest warrant.”
