YADKIN COUNTY, N.C. — The Yadkin County Sheriff’s Office arrested a West Virginia man on child sex abuse charges Tuesday.

John Charles Furrow, 68, of Shady Spring, W.Va., is charged with two felony counts of indecent liberties with a child.

The charges stem from an investigation that began on Jan. 16 after the victim’s parents reported concerns that their child was being sexually abused by Furrow.

Furrow is being held on a $50,000 secured bond.
