IREDELL COUNTY, N.C. -- A convicted sex offender accused of targeting another victim in Iredell County has been arrested.
Investigators tracked down David Wayne Latty Jr., 36, in Michigan after they realized he wasn’t living at the Mooresville address he used to register as an offender.
Detectives interviewed the child, who told them where the alleged assaults occurred. The U.S. Marshal’s Office then stepped in to assist with the case.
The U.S. Marshal Fugitive Team found Latty in Bearveton, Mich. in November. He was extradited back to North Carolina. Officers booked him into the Iredell County Detention Center on Dec. 11.
He’s charged with four counts of sexual offense with a child and failure to register as a sex offender.
Latty was placed under a $450,000 secured bond.
