A 30-year-old man was arrested Friday for molesting a 14-year-old girl, Pinellas County sheriff's deputies said.

Jeffrey Joseph Lacava, 15354 Waverly St., Clearwater, has been charged with lewd and lascivious battery, as well as unrelated charges of violating probation for grand theft and possession of a controlled substance, deputies said.

Detectives began to investigate this month after the victim disclosed to her sister that she had been touched by the suspect in a sexual manner. The sister reported the incidents.

The crime occurred on at least four separate occasions in October, deputies said.

The investigation is continuing.
