GWINNETT COUNTY, GA (CBS46) -

Gwinnett County authorities tell CBS Atlanta News that a man is now in custody after he fled the state to avoid multiple child sex abuse charges.

Ricardo Tirado-Pantoja fled on May 6 after the investigation launched, according to police.

Deputies developed leads which tracked Tirado-Pantoja to Louisiana, where U.S. Marshals arrested him on May 30.

He is charged with child molestation, as well as battery and two counts of cruelty to children, which are charges stemming from an unrelated incident.

He is also being held for immigration.
