The Huron County Sheriff's Office is continuing its investigation of a man accused of having sexual activity with two 16-year-old girls.

Detective Kayla Zander said the suspect is a 29-year-old Huron County resident who became acquainted with the girls, who are friends, through Facebook. She declined to say when the man met the victims in person.

"He currently has not been arrested," Zander said Thursday.

The Reflector isn't naming the suspect because he hasn't been charged.

While Zander declined to be specific about the sex offense, she said the incident reportedly happened on Seminary Street in Norwalk.

The juveniles' parents reported the allegations to the sheriff's office Feb. 7. Zander said the complaint came in late during third shift and she began investigating the case the following morning.

"Since this (complaint) came out, the individual has two warrants for weapons under disability when a gun was found in his residence during a safety sweep," she said.

Deputy Eric Bardar found the weapon Saturday and logged it into evidence.

Suspects are charged with having weapons under disability if they are found in possession of firearms while they are on probation or parole.

"The gun was stolen out of Clyde. It was tied to a burglary in Clyde," Zander said.

The sex case remains under investigation.
