Friday, February 3, 2017


A weeklong investigation by the Rocky Mount Police Department late last month landed a local man behind bars Wednesday, facing multiple sex offense charges.

Police said a local mother recently discovered inappropriate conversations between her daughter and a man on her daughter’s electronics. They said the conversations were discovered when the mother was checking her daughter’s electronics.

Officers said the alleged discussions centered on things that the woman’s daughter and the man had allegedly done together — but would not say when or how the alleged conversations began.

They said when the woman discovered the conversations, she called Rocky Mount police with the information on Jan. 20. Police conducted a weeklong investigation into the claims. The investigation led to warrants being taken out for the arrest of Tamon Dewan Durant, 32, of Rocky Mount.

Durant was arrested Feb. 1 in connection to the alleged acts and charged with two counts of felony indecent liberties with a minor, two counts of statutory rape and two counts of statutory sex offense. He was jailed in the Nash County Detention Center under $500,000 secured bond.
