DeKalb County Sheriff Nick Welden said of the incident: "Protection of our children is our number ONE priority and always will be!  Working relationships continue to improve across county lines and this is what I love to see (working together).  Outstanding job done by our investigators, acting fast and following leads to make an arrest.  It's sad a situation like this happens, it damages a child's life forever.  We ALL need to pray for these situations and families involved."

"God Bless!" Concluded Sheriff Welden.
