Two charged with child molestation
No bond set for pair as of Friday night
John Corbett Swain

    Two men were arrested Friday morning on child molestation and other charges, according to reports from the Bulloch County Sheriff’s Office.
    20-year old John Corbett “Cory” Swain of the 800 block of Eldora Road, Ellabell, and 21-year old Sean Travis Gifford of the 100 block of Tall Timbers Lane, Brooklet were both charged with child molestation, enticing a child for indecent purposes, sexual battery, burglary and criminal tresspass.
    On Tuesday, a Fernwood Drive resident had reported that the men behaved inappropriately with their juvenile child and a neighbor’s child, described in the report as females whose ages are 12 and 13. The incident reportedly occurred near the Eldora Baptist Church on Eldora Road.
    According to the report, deputies were unable to locate the two suspects at the time of the call, so arrest warrants were issued for the men at that time.
    Early Friday morning, the deputies found the men at an address on Tall Timbers Lane in Brooklet, where they were arrested after initial resistance before being taken into custody.
    Reports indicate the burglary and criminal  tresspass   charges resulted from the pair breaking into a building on the grounds of the church.
    As of Friday evening, no bond had been set for either offender, reports indicated.
