Back in August, a man was wanted on a warrant for child molestation and resisting arrest charges. He is now in custody. The man was identified as 36 year-old Jeremiah R. Twiggs. He was arrested and taken to the Cape Girardeau County Jail on charges of first-degree child molestation. His victim was under the age of 12. He was also charged with resisting/interfering with arrest for a felony. His bond was set at $60,000. Police say Twiggs was taken into custody after he was found hiding under a sink in an apartment in Cape Girardeau. Twiggs is a registered sex offender. Police said he fled from officers in his vehicle and then on foot when they previously attempted to arrest him.
