Lain McMaster

A Cut Off man was arrested yesterday for child molestation.

Authorities believe they may have been other victims of the suspect.

LPSO opened an investigation into Lain McMaster, 21, after learning he reportedly molested a girl under the age of 13.

Investigators learned that during a recent incident at a Larose residence, McMaster allegedly touched the girl and stopped when someone approached.

On Nov. 14, deputies made contact with the suspect and he allegedly admitted to his involvement in the crime.

The suspect was booked into the Lafourche Parish Correctional Complex in Thibodaux. He was charged with molestation of a juvenile under the age of 13. Bail is set at $100,000.

The investigation into McMaster is continuing. Due to the nature of the crimes and investigation, detectives believe there may be additional victims. Any other victims are encouraged to contact Lieutenant Sean Scott of the Lafourche Parish Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigations Division at (985) 532-4334.
