BANGOR, Mich. (WOOD) — The Bangor Police Department says an adult was arrested after being found with a minor in an apartment.

Police said Tuesday that when they arrived to the apartment on West Monroe Street, they found the minor, described as a runaway, hiding in a bedroom with the 27-year-old.

Police say the suspect had several arrest warrants, including a nationwide one out of Kentucky for a sex crime involving the minor.

Investigators say the adult drove the minor through many states and tried to avoid authorities by moving around.

The suspect was taken to the Van Buren County Jail to await arraignment on charges, including some out of Michigan.

The minor was sent to the Van Buren County Juvenile Court.
