LOWGAP — A Lowgap man has been arrested on four felony counts of sexually abusing a juvenile.
The 61-year-old man has been identified as Michael Cary Riffe of 850 Imogene Church Road by Surry County Sheriff Graham Atkinson. Riffe has been charged with two counts of a first-degree sex offensive and two counts of a statutory sex offense.
“Deputies served a search warrant at his residence yesterday based on information gathered in our investigation,” said Atkinson on Friday. “We found evidence in the residence of what the boy had told us was there.”
Atkinson said there is a possibility there are additional victims.
“There has been a report that there was a previous incident involving another victim,” he said. Atkinson said that report is under investigation.
Riffe was jailed with bond set at $500.
