Three people were arrested Wednesday by Moore County Sheriff's Office in connection to an investigation of sexual offense with a child in the Robbins area.

Jeremy Scott Sheffield, 44 of Carthage, Kelly Jean Steele, 39 of Robbins, and Gina Sheffield McLeod, age 55, of Carthage were arrested after the Moore County Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigations Division received a report of a sexual assault on a child Saturday, a release from the Sheriff's Office said.

"Following information received, Detectives executed a search warrant at a residence in the Carthage area on Sept. 13," the release said.

Sheffield was charged with one count of statutory rape of a child by an adult, one count of indecent liberties with a child and two counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor. Sheffield was confined to the Moore County Detention Center under a $500,000.00 secured bond and is first scheduled to appear in Moore County District Court on Sept. 23.

Steele was charged with two counts of felony child abuse-sexual act-commits/allows. Steele was confined to the Moore County Detention Center under a $200,000.00 secured bond and is first scheduled to appear in Moore County District Court on Sept. 23.
