POLICE: Marine Arrested After Meeting 12-Year-Old

A Camp Lejeune Marine is accused of meeting a 12-year-old Smithfield girl that he met on the internet. Police tell WITN News that the girl's 10-year-old sister was also with them.

19-year-old Anthony Ferguson was charged by Smithfield police with two counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

Police say Ferguson was spotted in his car with the 12-year-old, and her 10-year-old sister around 3:00 am on last Saturday.

Officers say they were responding to another call when they spotted his car.

Police say Ferguson met the girl in an internet chatroom and later arranged to meet her. The girl is said to have left her home with her sister without her parents' knowledge to meet with the Marine.

Police say no evidence exists of any sexual activity between Ferguson and the two girls.
