ROWAN COUNTY, N.C. -- A Salisbury man is charged after deputies say he was in connection with a sex offense involving children.

Mateo Campos, 44, was charged with three felony counts of first-degree sexual offense and one felony count of indecent liberties with a child.

Deputies say investigations allowed detectives to link Campos to another sexual offense that took place in 2011. The cases involve more than one child victim that are under the age of 15, deputies say.

Campos was issued a $100,000 secured bond.
