CONOVER â€” Twenty-seven sex offenders who preyed upon local children were successfully prosecuted in 2013, thanks to the work of the Childrenâ€™s Advocacy and Protection Center of Catawba County, local law enforcement and the District Attorneyâ€™s Office.
A Newton man was arrested on Thursday after authorities found him in possession of drugs.
After an anonymous tip was provided to the Catawba County Sheriffâ€™s Office, a probation officer and narcotics investigators searched the property of 33-year-old George Andrew Singer, of 2669 Claremont Road.
