Acting on a Cybertip from the North Carolina State Bureau Of Investigation Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Force, Rockingham County Sheriff’s Investigators conducted a Search Warrant at 159 Circle Loop in Reidsville earlier today.

After conducting a search warrant at this location, investigators arrested Jeffrey Wayne Whitaker, 63, of 159 Circle Loop Reidsville, N.C. They charged him with two counts of Second-Degree Sexual Exploitation of a Minor. Whitaker is on the North Carolina Sex Offender Registry for a June 1982 conviction in Forsyth County for 2nd Degree Sex Offense.

Sheriff Sam Page and the Rockingham County Sheriff’s Office would like to thank the North Carolina State Bureau Of Investigation Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Force, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, and the Invictus Task Force for assisting with this investigation.

Mr. Whitaker was taken before the Magistrate and received no bond because this arrest occurred while Whitaker was already on Pretrial Release for an Indecent Exposure charge on which he is awaiting trial. This investigation is ongoing at this time.
