ALBANY, GA (WALB) - A member of the United States military wanted for dozens of sex crimes in North Carolina is in the Dougherty County jail after he surrendered to Albany Police.  

42-year-old Laurence David Clifton was on the Fayetteville Police Department's Most Wanted List. He's charged with 40-counts of 2nd and 3rd degree Sexual Exploitation of a Minor.

Clifton simply walked into the Albany Police Station on Dawson Road Wednesday morning and told officers he was a wanted man. Police checked his record and arrested him.

A Fayetteville Police Department spokesperson says the charges are related to child pornography and tells us Clifton was and may still be a member of the United States Army.

On Thursday morning, the Cumberland County North Carolina Fugitive Task Force will file extradition papers. According to Albany Police, Clifton may also have nine other warrants issued against him in other states.
