Sheriff Steve Prator said Roy Arlen Vannortrick, 40, was arrested by the U.S. Marshal's Task Force in Eaton Rapids, Mich., on Oct. 31. He was extradited to Caddo Parish on Tuesday and booked into the Caddo Correctional Center on two counts of aggravated rape.

Bond was set at $1 million.

Authorities said Vannortrick is accused of sexually abusing the girls repeatedly when he lived in the parish in 2009 and 2010. The girls were under age 13 at the time of the alleged crimes.

Detective Jared Marshall described Vannortrick as a family friend.



This is really getting old, who is raising these people that don't know right from wrong?

Believe me when I say that we have all, at one time or another, had our hormones go off the reservation a time or two when we were growing up; some longer than others. My parents, and we taught our kids too, explained this would happen and what was appropriate and correct and what was freaking wrong. We needed to learn to keep ourselves in check when these unpredictable urges arose and not hurt anybody no matter what. YOU DON’T HURT WOMEN OR CHILDREN, EVER!!!!!
