Lenoir County man arrested for sex offenses with a child

On 07/21/2023 Lenoir County Sheriff’s Deputies arrested Timothy Denis Gray, 42, of Deep Run, NC on warrants obtained by the Carteret County Sheriff’s Office for rape and taking indecent liberties with a child.

Carteret Sheriff’s detectives have been investigating Gray since the incident was first reported in late 2021 for crimes that occurred in 2016.

Warrants were issued in 2022 but Gray managed to stay under the radar bouncing between Craven, Lenoir, and Wayne Counties.

Lenoir County B-shift deputies patiently waited to capture Gray in the early morning hours of 07/21/2023. Gray was transferred from the Lenoir County Jail back to Carteret Co.

Gray has been charged with First Degree Rape of a Child and four counts of Indecent Liberties with a Child. Gray is now being held in the Carteret County Jail under a $450,000.00 bond.
