“A Warren County minister has been charged with statutory rape and sexual battery, Sheriff Martin Pace said.

The Vicksburg Post reported that The Rev. Troy Anthony Piccaluga, 48, pastor of the Eagle Lake and Redwood United Methodist churches, was arrested Thursday at his home in the Redwood community.

Piccaluga is accused of having sexual contact with two girls between the ages of 14 and 16.

The investigation began after the sheriff’s department received information that a juvenile had a sexual relationship with an older male.

During the course of the investigation a second victim was identified. The alleged incidents occurred at several locations in Warren County, but Sheriff Pace would not say where.

Piccaluga is charged with two counts of statutory rape and one count of sexual battery. He is being held without bond.”
