(BLOOMINGTON) - A Bedford man has been picked up by Bloomington police, accused of child molestation.

The Bloomington Herald Times reports 34-year-old Loren Jewell of Bedford is in custody, facing charges of child molestation and criminal deviate conduct.

The paper says a detective interviewed the female victim, now a teenager, who alleged Jewell had been molesting her for the past 5 years.

Bloomington detectives then came to Bedford and interviewed Jewell at the Bedford Police Department, and Jewell reportedly admitted to the crimes, giving details that were the same or similar to those given by the victim.

Jewell was then taken to the Monroe County jail, and cash bond was set at $500.
