Central Point man arrested for child abuse

Central Point, Ore. -- A Central Point man arrested earlier this year for selling marijuana and psychedelic mushrooms is facing more serious charges.

Authorities say Ernest Luther Taylor is facing several charges including sex abuse and using a child in a display of sexually explicit conduct.

The evidence was found after a standard review of electronic evidence obtained during the previous drug case from February.

After executing a search warrant at Taylor's known address it was determined that he was in Crescent City, California.

Taylor is now in custody in Del Norte county awaiting extradition to Jackson County.
