PITTSBORO, Miss. (WTVA) - A man wanted on child molestation charges has been captured in Arizona, according to Calhoun County Sheriff Greg Pollan.

Jose Rubio was captured by the U.S. Marshals Service in mid-December after authorities received a tip that his vehicle was heading towards Phoenix.

Rubio had been wanted out of Calhoun County since the beginning of December when the incidents were first reported, Pollan said.

Rubio did know his victims.

He is expected to go before a judge later this week.
