A former Ascension Parish Sheriff's deputy is in police custody after being on the run.
Todd Tripp, 31, was wanted on three counts of carnal knowledge of a juvenile, computer-aided solicitation of a minor, and unlawful use or access of social media.
Tripp was captured Tuesday in South Carolina and will be brought back to Ascension Parish Jail.
Investigators received a tip saying Tripp had contact with a 16-year-old boy who lives in another parish.
Deceives allege Tripp met with the teen at least three times and engaged in sexual activity.
