A man wanted for allegedly drugging and assaulting a teenage girl has been captured in Mexico, according to Forsyth County police.

Police say Kenneth Dustin Grant was wanted for failure to appear on charges of aggravated child molestation, aggravated sexual battery, child molestation and sexual exploitation of children.

According to police, in 2008, Grant drugged and assaulted a friend's teenage daughter. He reportedly had hired the girl to babysit his own young children. Police say Grant also took pictures of the assault. They also report Grant also assaulted the girl's older sister. Investigators also found photos of other young girls.

In September 2010, Grant was scheduled to appear before a judge for a hearing. He never showed. Police later found Grant's ankle bracelet in Lake Lanier.

The fugitive was featured on the show America's Most Wanted several times.

The U.S. Marshals finally tracked down Grant in Guadalajara, Mexico where he was living under a false identity. Grant was taken to Los Angeles International Airport where he was turned over to the Los Angeles Police Department. He will stay there until he is extradited to Forsyth County.
