A Mississippi man is accused of molesting young girls in Lafourche Parish.

Louisiana State Police arrested Celestino Garcia, of Brookhaven, Miss., and booked him on counts of aggravated rape, molestation of a juvenile and oral sexual battery.

His bail was set at $175,000.

Troopers say Garcia, believed to be a legal U.S. resident, recently moved to Brookhaven from Golden Meadow, La., but continued to work in Louisiana.

Troopers say investigators received allegations that Garcia had inappropriate sexual contact with four girls between the ages of 7 and 12.

The allegations led to warrants for his arrest.
