Sheriff Darren Campbell stated on 09/15/2016 Deputy David Price of the Iredell County Sheriff’s Office Special Victims Unit received information Mr. Bennie Wiles, a registered sex offender, was not staying at his address of record. Deputy Price learned Mr. Wiles could possibly be staying at 185 River Run Rd. with his girlfriend. After further investigation Deputy Price located two witness’s that helped to determine Mr. Wiles was indeed staying at this address more than he was his registered address. Since Mr. Wiles was in violation of the law regarding sex offender registry, Deputy Price charged him with failing to notify change of address. Mr. Wiles was placed on the Sex Offender Registry for a 2006 conviction of kidnapping.
On 09/18/2016 Sgt. Ernie Line of the Iredell County Sheriff’s A.C.E. Team located Mr. Wiles and arrested him for the outstanding warrant. Mr. Wiles was transported to the Iredell County Sheriff’s Detention Center and taken before Magistrate Thompson. Bond was set at $10,000.00 secured. Mr. Wiles is being detained at the Iredell County Detention Center until such time that bond is made or justice is satisfied in this matter.
Mr. Wiles has prior convictions of Larceny, Assault on Female, Common Law Robbery, and Injury to Personal Property.
