ATCHISON COUNTY—Law enforcement authorities investigating a suspect for alleged sex crimes have moved him to a jail in Kansas.

On November 17, U.S. Marshals arrested Cameron J. Johnson, 19, Atchison, in Kansas City Missouri on an Atchison District Court warrant for indecent liberties with a child, according to Police Chief Mike Wilson.

The U.S. Marshal’s Service had been assisting Atchison Police detectives locating Johnson. Atchison Police had initiated an investigation on October 18 that focused on a victim under the age of 16 which led to the warrant for Johnson.
