The Harnett County Sheriff's Office has charged a Sanford man with one count of first-degree rape of a child under the age of 13.

Thirty-three-year-old Bailey Joe Mills was jailed under $500,000 bond.

Deputies said the investigation began after the alleged victim's parent spotted a disturbing Facebook message and called the sheriff's office. Deputies and an SBI agent served a search warrant at Mills' Nicole Drive home late Sunday night.

Deputies said they were reviewing the evidence gathered and more charges are possible.
