Miner man faces child molestation charges
MINER -- A Miner man faces multiple felony charges of child molestation in Scott County.
Julio Rosendo Sales, 44, is charged with nine counts of first-degree child molestation.
Officers with the Fugitive Task Force and Kansas City, Mo., Police Department served a Scott County search warrant, and arrested Sales, according to Miner Police Chief Chris Griggs.
"The warrant stemmed from an investigation being conducted by the Miner Police Department into accusations of Sales, and his conduct involving young minor children," Griggs said.
Officers with the Sikeston Department of Public Safety and the Miner Police Department attempted to apprehend Sales on Thursday; however, it was later discovered he fled the area and information led officers to Kansas City, Griggs said.
Bond is set at $25,000 cash only, and Sales is awaiting extradition from Jackson County to the Scott County Sheriff's Department.
