Rodney Lee Harrison, 50, was transferred to Hopkins County Jail from Collin County Jail on two Hopkins County warrants for Continuous Sexual Abuse of a Child and Indecency with a Child.
The case against Harrison originally began with the report of an incident at a Sulphur Springs park in December 2018 that was investigated by Sulphur Springs Police Department. That investigation led to a report of another incident in Hopkins County.
HCSO and SSPD began a joint investigation into the incidents and conducted forensic interviews with the two female victims. The two warrants were issued as a result of the forensic interviews.
Harrison knew he was wanted by local law enforcement and was attempting to evade arrest. The joint investigation, led by HCSO Investigator Dennis Findley and SSPD Detective Sergeant David Gilmore, resulted in the discovery of a McKinney address where Harrison might have been hiding.
Collin County law enforcement was contacted and they began a surveillance of the McKinney address where a vehicle that Harrison was believed to be using was identified. Harrison eventually left the residence and that’s when Collin County officers took him into custody and transferred him to Hopkins County yesterday.
Harrison is currently held at Hopkins County Jail on bonds totaling $250,000.
