CALCASIEU PARISH, LA (KPLC) -

A Vinton man, accused of sex crimes, was arrested in Texas this week after months on the run, according to a news release from the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office.

David Lee Massey, 33, is accused of taking nude photographs and having inappropriate sexual contact with three juveniles, ages 11, 13, and 14. He is also accused of physically abusing two of the alleged victims.

A complaint against Massey was filed in July 2012, however, detectives could not locate him.

Authorities said in February, a Calcasieu grand jury indicted Massey and an arrest warrant was issued.

On Wednesday, Massey was located and arrested in Orange, Texas with assistance from the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force, Orange County Sheriff's Office, Louisiana Attorney General's Office and Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office.

Massey waived extradition and on Thursday, he was brought to the Calcasieu Correctional Center and charged with aggravated sexual battery, pornography involving juveniles and cruelty to a juvenile.

Bond is set at $125,000.
