GROVETOWN, GA (WFXG) -

A Florida man wanted on child sex charges is in jail after U.S. Marshals arrested him Wednesday at a Grovetown hotel.

Tyrone Markee James, 36, was charged by the Sumter County Sheriff's Office in Florida on five counts of sexual battery on a minor between the ages of 12 and 18, according to the U.S. Marshals Office. James left the Florida area before officials could arrest him.

Investigators discovered that James relocated to the Augusta area for employment, according to the release. U.S. Marshals found James at a hotel in Grovetown Wednesday.

U.S. Marshals say he was expecting room service but got a visit from them instead.

James was booked at the Columbia County Jail and is awaiting extradition to Florida.

U.S. Marshals say James was convicted of second-degree murder in 2003 and of felony battery in 2012.
