BLADEN COUNTY, NC (WWAY) -- A Bladen County man is in jail charged with raping a child.

The Sheriff's Office charged John Owens Jacobs, 42, of Bladenboro, yesterday with two counts of first degree rape of a child under the age of 13 and one count of first degree sex offense of a child.

The Sheriff's Office says the arrest came after the Department of Social Services notified deputies of the allegations.

Investigators were able to get enough evidence to obtain warrants for Jacobs.

The investigation continues, and the Sheriff's Office says more charges could be filed.

Jacobs is currently in the Bladen County Jail under a $125,000 secured bond.
