Authorities arrested on Thursday a Stringer man for allegedly committing a sex act upon an underage relative.

On Tuesday, Billy James Bergeron, 48, was arrested at his home by Jasper County Authorities.

Investigators said they issued a warrant at the Bergeron home after his 8-year-old relative told her mother that she had been touched inappropriately by her grandfather.

Authorities said evidence found at Bergeron's house during the investigation is what lead to his arrest.

Bergeron remains in Jasper County Jail on a $100,000 bond.
