Man arrested for having sex with a teen no stranger to authorities

NEW MADRID COUNTY, Mo. - A Heartland man's behind bars facing child sex charges. Investigators say 39-year-old Anthony Cameron of Marston had sex with a young girl.
Court documents report when family members realized she was showing up late for school, they called New Madrid Count Sheriff's deputies to investigate.
According to court documents, the teen told investigators Cameron knew exactly how old she was. "That's why parents should always know who their child's hanging out with. I would not let a young teen hang out with someone in their 30s or 40s," New Madrid County Sheriff Terry Stevens says.
This isn't the first time Cameron's had trouble with the law. He's said to be a caretaker of horses. Two years ago authorities removed 11 horses out of his custody, citing animal cruelty. The Sheriff says he recently got calls from people about horses still in Cameron's care. They claim the horses look underfed and weak. We only found two of those horses Wednesday.
The sheriff says he may call on the Humane Society of Missouri if nobody comes forward to claim them or looks after them while Cameron's in jail.
