Man Charged With Taking Indecent Liberties With Child

A three month investigation resulted in the arrest Wednesday of 39 year-old Edgar DeJesus Palencia of Audrey Circle, Garner.

Palencia was charged by Johnston County sheriff’s detectives with two felony counts of taking indecent liberties with a child. The alleged offenses involved a juvenile under the age of 14.

Palencia was held on a $100,000 secured bond at the Johnston County Jail. Because the case involved a juvenile, no additional details were released.
