Deputies have arrested a 68-year-old Anderson man, saying he sexually molested three young girls over a six year period.

Gary Lee Trusty was arrested around 2 p.m. Thursday by the Shasta County Sheriff's Office Major Crimes Unit for eight counts of child molestation.

According to a news release, Trusty sexually molested three girls in separate incidents, who were all under 10-years-old. All three victims knew Trusty personally before the alleged incidents occurred.

Detectives say they questioned the victims separately and each provided a similar account of the incidents.

Trusty has been booked into the Shasta County Jail on $500,000 bail.

Detectives believe it is possible that there could be other victims. Anyone who has information or has been victimized by Trusty is encouraged to contact the Shasta County Sheriff's Office.
