RAPID CITY, SD -

A man wanted in Ohio for failing to appear on a charge of gross sexual imposition has been found living in a tent on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in southwestern South Dakota.

Paul Thielsen, the U.S. Marshal for the District of South Dakota, announced Friday that officers arrested Shawn Kerns earlier this week after locating him in the Pine Ridge village of Oglala. Kerns was wanted by officials in Logan, Ohio, for failing to appear in court on a charge of gross sexual imposition of two minor girls, ages 8 and 14.

Kerns is being held in Pennington County Jail while he awaits extradition to Ohio.

The Bureau of Indian Affairs and the Oglala Sioux Department of Safety also assisted in the arrest.
