Federal and state agencies are warning residents of both the Chipley area and in the area of the Joint Base Lewis McChord military base in Washington that more victims could surface in the recent investigation of a Chipley Army sergeant.

Acting on a tip from Florida last week, investigators from the Federal Bureau of Investigation, US Army Criminal Investigation Division and Washington State Patrol arrested a 27-year old Sergeant Joseph T. French of Chipley on multiple allegations of child rape.

Detectives encourage anyone whose children had contact with French to contact them by calling (360) 704-2410 or by emailing investigators at: mectf@wsp.wa.gov
