CLAY COUNTY, Fla. – A Middleburg man was arrested Tuesday on a child sex charge, according to online jail records.

Richard Allan Griffin, 58, was in the Clay County jail on $50,000 bond as of Wednesday, jail records show. 

The Clay County Sheriff's Office said its Internet Crimes Against Children Team, assisted by its Cyber Unit, executed a search warrant off Rose Ridge Court in Middleburg and Griffin was arrested.

Deputies said the search warrant yielded evidence in a child sexual abuse investigation.

According to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement sex offender registry, Griffin is a registered sex predator. The site lists three sex crimes against children in the 1990s.
