TRAVELERS REST, SC (FOX Carolina) -

A Travelers Rest man wanted by police was found in Georgia on Thursday after federal agents said they were searching for him for days.

The U.S. Marshals fugitive task force said they received word that 30-year-old Walter Alexander had been spotted in Thomson, GA, outside of Augusta on May 15.

According to the South Carolina Attorney General's Office, Alexander was wanted by Travelers Rest police on 19 counts of Sexual Exploitation of a Minor third degree , a felony offense punishable by up to 10 years imprisonment on each count if found guilty.

Police searched Alexander's home on April 24, leading to the charges, the Marshals said.

The Marshals said since April 29, they had been looking for Alexander across the Upstate and once they received word he was in Georgia, they were able to find and arrest him at the Scottish Inn Motel in Thomson on Thursday.

Alexander was arrested along with his brother, who Marshals said was wanted in Pickens County and by Travelers Rest police.

Both men are awaiting extradition back to South Carolina.
