Washington, D.C.
– The U.S. Marshals are offering a
$2,500 reward for information leading
to the arrest of a man wanted by the Lenoir County Sheriff’s Office on a
charge of indecent liberties with a child following a June 1, 2017,
incident.

Jeremy Staten, 24, has connections to Kinston, N.C.;
Nashville, Tenn.; and Mexico, and could be living with family or close
friends in those areas, according to investigators with the U.S.
Marshals-led Carolinas Regional Fugitive Task Force, who adopted the
case in April 2018.


Jeremy Staten

Staten is described as a black male with brown
eyes and black hair. He stands 5 feet 10 inches tall and weighs
approximately 160 pounds. Staten is fluent in Spanish and could possibly
be living in Mexico.

Anyone with information on Staten’s
whereabouts should contact the U.S. Marshals Service (USMS) at
1-877-WANTED2 or use the USMS Tips
App. Your information will be taken in strict confidence. Your anonymity
is guaranteed.

The USMS leads eight regional fugitive task
forces — interagency teams of criminal investigators dedicated to the
location and apprehension of local, state, and federal fugitives.
