An 18-year-old Fort Oglethorpe man has been arrested on child molestation charges for allegedly having sexual relations with a 12-year-old girl, police say.

According to the Catoosa County Sheriff's Department:

Bradley Michael Timmons of Colony Circle was arrested Feb. 7 on three counts of child molestation. He has been released on bond.

The allegations against Timmons stem from a complaint filed in late November in which a mother told police she believed her 12-year-old daughter was having a sexual relationship with Timmons.

The woman claimed she'd witnessed a Snapchat message from her daughter to another child confirming the acts, which allegedly occurred at a Rossville residence sometime in October.

Investigators interviewed the child in December and ultimately obtained three warrants for Timmons' arrest on Feb. 7.

Later that day, detectives showed up at Timmons' home and took him into custody.
