A Sullivan County man was arrested for child molesting and other charges late Monday morning.

State Police say their Internet Crimes Against Children and Cyber Crimes Squads descended upon a Dugger residence to serve a search warrant at 11am yesterday.

The investigators found over a dozen images of sexual nature involving young children.  They also developed information that the suspect, 38-year-old Benjamin Wiley, had molested a 12 year old girl at various times from June to December last year.

The arrest came after an investigation started last week at the request of the Sullivan County Department of Child Services through a tip on the alleged crimes.
