LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Police arrested a southern Indiana man for sexual misconduct with a child.

Victor Weill, 74, was arrested Tuesday.

Indiana State Police detectives said they got a tip two months ago from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children that Weill had engaged in sexual activity with a 15-year-old.

"This activity was picked on by the people that were monitoring forwarded to us," Indiana State Police Sgt. Stephen Wheeles said. "Fortunately, we could stop this before there were any more victims."

Investigators searched his home Tuesday in rural Jefferson County, Indiana, and then arrested him at his workplace in Madison, Indiana.

"We've determined that the individual had sexual conduct with a 15-year-old," Wheeles said. "The investigation is ongoing, and it's possible that additional charges may be filed in this case."

Weill is locked up at the Jefferson County Jail, charged with sexual misconduct with a minor and child solicitation.
