Man arrested on suspicion of statutory rape in Concord
CONCORD, N.C. —
Wesley Allen Talbert, 30, was taken into custody Sunday by Rowan County Sheriff Office detectives at a truck yard in Concord.
Concord Police assisted with the warrant service at BAH Express and Talbert was taken into custody without incident.
Wesley had an active warrant for allegedly kidnapping a 15-year-old girl in Rowan County in April 2012.
Talbert was taken before the magistrate and ordered to be placed in the Rowan County Detention with a $100,000 bond.
Wednesday, the magistrate was presented with information concerning sexual contact by Talbert with this same 15-year-old girl. The magistrate found probable cause in this case, and five warrants for statutory rape of a 14- and 15-year-old child were issued.
The magistrate increased the bond to $200,000 secured bond.
Talbert remains in the Rowan County Detention Center.
