According to investigators in Bradley County, a pedophile has been arrested for two counts of child rape.
The incidents took place in Cleveland, Tennessee where the suspect, Brent Austin Miolen, has been under investigation for nearly six months when the incident was reported in April.
Sergeant Evie West of the Cleveland, Tennessee Police Department confirmed that the victim was only nine years old at the time of the molestations.
West also said that the suspect who they identified as Brent Austin Miolen, was an active duty member of the United States Army and was stationed in Ansbach, Germany at the time of the arrest.
A detective who was working the case with the Cleveland Police Department, Andy Ratcliff, was able to reach out to the Army's Criminal Investigation Division (CID) which then put him in contact with the United States Army's CID office in Ansbach, Germany.
Both Detective Ratcliff and investigators from the Army's CID worked in cooperation to secure a Grand Jury indictment against Miolen on August 16th last month.
While awaiting an indictment, Miolen was escorted to Fort Bliss where he was detained pending the results of the investigation.
Once he was finally indicted, Miolen was then transferred into the custody of the El Paso Sheriff’s Office.
Miolen then waived his rights to an extradition hearing which resulted in an expedited transfer back to Bradley County where he now faces trial.
