A Cherokee man is in the Colbert County Jail, charged with two counts of first-degree sexual abuse.

Sheriff's deputies arrested Troy Lee Keller. They said the arrest stems from a complaint from a 13-year-old female who said she had been sexually abused after meeting a man who claimed to be 17 years old on Facebook. The victim said the man's name was Troy Keller.

The victim said that she snuck out of a relative's house late at night to meet the man. At some point in their meeting, she witnessed him pouring a 'white powder' into a beer, which she then drank.

She told investigators Keller drove around for awhile before stopping the vehicle along a road and began to touch her inappropriately. She said he then drove her back to an area near where he picked her up, let her out, and then drove away.

Keller is being held on a $75,000 bond.
