A Florida man living in Maryville is now behind bars for child molestation.

Early this month, the Gulf County Sheriff's Department in Florida started investigating 66-year-old Dennis Weaver. Investigators found evidence against Weaver using undercover operations.

Tuesday, the US Marshals Service arrested him. He faces one count of lewd molestation and three counts for beating a child younger than 16.

Weaver could face 15 years in prison for each count. He is awaiting extradition back to Florida.
