A 24-year-old man has been arrested in Camden County on child molestation charges.

Officials say James Hendricks of Gloucester Township, N.J. was arrested Monday on charges related to alleged inappropriate contact with minors.

Camden County Prosecutors office says an investigation began last week with reports of Hendricks attempting to contact a Waterford female through Facebook.

During the investigation, authorities learned of two other accusations of inappropriate contact or activity taking place between the defendant and children.

He is accused of inappropriate touching one female child in Gloucester Township in 2005, and of showing pornography to a male child in Gloucester Township in May 2012.

Hendricks is being held at the Camden County Jail on $100,000 bail. He is facing a laundry list of charges including Endangering the Welfare of a Minor and Aggravated Sexual Assault.

Investigators are asking anyone with information related to this case to contact Camden County Prosecutor's Office Investigator Fawn Ackerman at 856-225-8648, Waterford Detective Lenny Thackston at 856-767-2134 or Gloucester Township Police Detective Brian Farrell at (856) 228-4500.
