(MORGANTOWN) - An Indiana minister and his wife are charged with sex crimes after a manhunt.

Investigators say they got a tip Jonathan and Buffy Harness were in Columbus. That's where authorities, including U.S. Marshals, caught up with them in a hotel.

The couple was taken to the Morgan County Jail, charged with multiple counts of child molestation and neglect of a dependent.

Jonathan Harness is listed as the pastor of Abundant Life Fellowship Church on East Washington Street in Morgantown. A website describes it as a Christian Israelite Congregation with services on Sunday.

There was no one at the church Thursday when reached for comment.

The Morgan County sheriff says he will release more information about his investigation Friday morning. The couple remains behind bars.
