GEORGETOWN, Texas (KXAN) – A man accused of harboring two teenage girls at the center of a recent Amber Alert is being held in Williamson County.
KXAN’s sister station KWKT in Waco reported that James Robert VanHouten was arrested by Williamson County authorities in connection with the disappearance of the two 14-year-old girls.
Williamson County online records show VanHouten was arrested by Georgetown police and jailed on Tuesday. He has two charges of harboring a runaway child.
The McLennan County Sheriff’s Office said deputies found the girls “out of town.” They had been missing since late June in McGregor, Texas, about 65 miles north of Georgetown.
The MCSO said there may be more arrests in the coming days.
