“Early Thursday morning, deputies responded to a reported child sexual abuse. Through investigation, deputies learned of two juvenile victims who reported being sexually abused by a relative, 53-year-old Daniel Lindsey of Jamestown. Deputies responded to Lindsey’s residence but determined he left just prior to their arrival.
Deputies searched the area and located Lindsey’s vehicle near New Melones Lake. Lindsey was not inside the vehicle. Deputies searched the lake shoreline and located Lindsey a few hundred yards away.
The Investigations Division responded and took over the investigation. Lindsey was subsequently arrested for various child sex crimes and booked into the Dambacher Detention Center without incident.
Further investigation is being conducted by the Sheriff’s Investigations Division. No further information is being released at this time.”
