A Blue Springs man has been arrested on multiple charges in Lee County, with more charges possible.

An investigation began when Lee County Sheriff’s Office was made aware of a man allegedly providing illegal narcotics to a child.

During the investigation, it was determined that 39-year-old Charles Bishop of Blue Springs was the suspect. Evidence of sexual battery against a child was also found, according to Lee County Sheriff Jim Johnson.

On March 30, a warrant was obtained for Mr. Bishop’s arrest. Bishop was soon located in another county and taken into custody by the U.S. Marshals Service.

Bishop is currently charged with 3 counts of sexual battery, 2 counts of child abuse/drug endangerment, 1 count of molestation, and 1 count of aggravated domestic violence.

More charges are possible in this ongoing investigation. If you have any information about this case, please contact Lee County Sheriff’s Department or CrimeStoppers of Northeast Mississippi.
