The Georgia Bureau of Investigation has arrested a University of Georgia maintenance worker on child molestation charges.

Monday, the GBI says it arrested 26-year-old Monroe resident Obadiah Lindsey on two counts of child molestation.

Officials say their investigation began in February when evidence discovered a separate investigation indicated Lindsey had sexual contact with an Athens-Clarke County juvenile.

In their investigation, the GBI says it discovered probable cause and obtained warrants for Lindsey's arrest.
