The Long County Sheriff’s Office is looking for help finding a child-molestation suspect and the person or people who stole two motors using a large commercial truck.
Investigator Tom Sollosi said the sheriff’s office is asking for any information on the whereabouts of Alfonzo Vasquez-Perez, 42, who faces an aggravated child-molestation charge. Sollosi said Perez had been living in Long County’s Sand Hills community but has disappeared.  According to the investigator, a warrant for Perez’s arrest has been filed.
Sollosi said Perez still may be in this area. He also reportedly has contacts in Columbia, Ky.; Pasadena, Texas; and Charlotte, N.C.
The sheriff’s office also is looking for any information on a reported theft that occurred sometime between March 5-8 at 1274 St. Morris Road.
Sollosi said authorities believe someone used a large commercial truck with an orange cab and a green body to steal two motors, one international and one Detroit. The investigator said the truck is believed to have high flotation tires in the front with tandem axles and dual-style wheels in the back. It also has a lift boom on the rear of the truck, an outrigger system for support and may be registered in Wayne County or Jesup.
Anyone with information on either case should call the LCSO at 545-2118.
