A 52-year old Thomasville man is accused of molesting five of his grand children.

Thomasville Police say Arthur Smith started molesting the victims when they were as young as 5 years old. One of the victims is now in her early 20's and says the abuse went on for years. Police say they know of four other victims.

Captain Maurice Holmes said, "There has been some incidents held in 2014 and 2015 so its not something that happened in the 90's and then stopped. Its something that's been going on continuously for over two decades."

Smith is charged with 2 counts of child molestation and 2 counts of incest.
