Posted Updated

KENLY, N.C. — A Kenly man now faces nine charges of sexually abusing children.

Sanford Barneycastle, 68, is charged with molesting three children.

Investigators with the Johnston County Sheriff's Office said there may be more victims and more charges.

"It's more disturbing when there are several victims. At this point, like I said, we only have three victims, but there is the possibility that more exist," said Capt. Dale Wheeler of the Johnston County Sheriff's Office.

Barneycastle is being held on a $450,000 bond.
