A Johnston County man is behind bars, charged with nine felony sex offenses.Sheriff's deputies say Jimmy Bruce Adams, 65, took indecent liberties with two children. He's also charged with first degree sex offense.

The victims are allegedly two teenage girls who the suspect knew.

Deputies say they found out about the alleged incidents because one of the victims told a friend at school, who then told a counselor, who then called the Department of Social Services.

Adams was arrested at his home on Ennis Road in Benson.

He is being held on a $500,000 bond, and is due in court on Monday.
