Federal marshals have captured a man sought on warrants in the molestation of two girls aged 10 and 12.
Joshua Alan Reeder, 29, was in Columbia, Mississippi, when they found him, Harrison County sheriff’s Lt. Coley Judy said.
Reeder had been staying with friends in a home off Mississippi 53 in Lyman in July 2015 when he molested the girls, Judy said.
“He would (babysit) the girls from time to time,” Judy said.

A complaint was filed with the sheriff’s department July 12, 2016.
“The girls waited to tell their daddy, and then we couldn’t find Mr. Reeder,” Judy said. “The marshals tracked him down.”
Reeder was brought to the Harrison County jail Tuesday. Judge Albert Fountain set bonds that total $200,000 on two counts of touching of a child for unlawful purposes.
