DARE COUNTY, N.C. (WAVY) - Deputies in Dare County have arrested a man on charges of indecent liberties with a minor.
Chief Deputy Steve Hoggard with the Dare County Sheriff's Office said deputies received a note from police Thursday in Delaware about a sex crime involving a child. Delaware police said the crime occurred on Hatteras Island.
After an investigation, deputies arrested Shawn Lee Rogers, 36, of Georgetown Delaware. Rogers was charged with indecent liberties with a minor and has been released on a $20,000 bond.
A company has been hired to complete the repairs to the Herbert C. Bonner Bridge on the Outer Banks, but how long those repairs will take remains unknown.
Drivers traveling between Hatteras Island and the mainland were forced to use an emergency ferry Wednesday, following the sudden closure of the Bonner Bridge Tuesday.
State officials say construction on a new Bonner Bridge has been delayed for years because of a legal battle with an environmental group.
