An Alabama fugitive wanted for the sexual abuse of two juveniles is in police custody.

Charles Sam McDonald, aka Uncle Sam, was arrested by the United States Marshal’s Fugitive Task Force in West Virginia.

McDonald is wanted for one count of sodomy first degree on a 13-year-old juvenile and for one count sexual abuse first degree on a 12-year-old juvenile. These offenses occurred in Autauga County between November and December 2019.

McDonald told family members that he was leaving for an area that “has one way in and one way out.” Authorities suspected he fled to the area around Beckley, West Virginia.

The Autauga County Sheriff’s Office is awaiting extradition to Alabama. No other details were released.
