The Kernersville Police Department (KPD) reported July 8 that a man wanted in connection with an ongoing KPD investigation has been apprehended.
According to the KPD, the department began investigating a crime in May that allegedly involved a child that occurred in Kernersville. Following their investigation, warrants were issued against Jeffrey Mach; however, before those warrants could be served, Mach fled the area and continued to elude authorities.
Police said after numerous attempts to locate Mach by use of social media and assistance for local law enforcement agencies, Mach was apprehended by the Winston-Salem Police Department on Thursday, July 7.
Mach was charged with indecent liberties with a child, statutory sexual offense with a child and served with an order for arrest for failure to appear. He is currently being held in the Forsyth County Jail under a $160,000 bond and was issued a preliminary court date of July 21.
