BRADLEY COUNTY, TN. (WRCB)-- U.S. Marshals Service arrested a man wanted on several warrants out of Bradley County Tuesday night after tracking him to a mobile home park in Decatur County.

Christopher Andrew Brewer was identified through an investigation by the Internet Crimes Against Children Unit of the Bradley County Sheriff's Office that began back in March.  

At that time, detectives received a cyber tip from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children that someone using a MySpace page was preying on young girls.  

Brewer had made statements about being involved with three underage girls in Bradley County for sexual purposes during police interviews.

Following an investigation, Brewer was indicted by the Grand Jury on three counts of statutory rape.

The 22-year-old suspect was taken to the Decatur County Jail, where he is awaiting extradition to Bradley County.

Brewer's other charges include failing to appear on felony and misdemeanor charges, pawned rental property and misdemeanor probation violation.
