A joint three-month investigation by the Callaway County Sheriff’s Office and Kansas law enforcement officers ended early Tuesday with the arrest of Craig Long, 42, Williamsburg.
Sgt. Clay Chism of the Callaway County Sheriff’s Office said the joint investigation began on Jan. 3 when Callaway County deputies and a detective from the Kansas City, Kan., Police Department executed a search warrant at Long’s residence near Williamsburg.
The search warrant was issued during a Kansas investigation of a felony sexual offense involving a child.
Several items were seized during the search warrant at Williamsburg.
On March 5, Kansas authorities issued a felony arrest warrant for Long as a result of the joint Missouri-Kansas investigation.
