Police in Orem has arrested a Utah County sheriff's deputy for his involvement in a child sex abuse case in Maricopa County, Arizona.

Maricopa County law enforcement contacted the Utah County Sheriff's Office Friday after a warrant was issued for 63-year-old Utah Sheriff's deputy Gerald Salcido.

Charges were filed against Salcido in Arizona on multiple counts of sexual conduct with a minor. Salcido was also charged with at least one count of molestation of a child.

An Arizona court set Salcido's bail at $75,000 and local authorities aided Orem police in arrested one of their own. Salcido was booked into a jail outside of Utah County.

The charges stem from the reported conduct that took place before Salcido was employed with the Utah County Sheriff's Office.

Salcido was a Utah County sheriff's deputy for 14 years and has been placed on administrative leave.
