The search for that former Fulton County, Georgia police officer wanted on child molestation charges came to an end .

The Bay County Sheriff's office told WJHG-TV, they caught 34-year-old Gregory Allen Graham in Panama City Beach Saturday morning at Thomas Drive and Joan Avenue.

For an unknown reason Graham needed medical treatment and spent about four hours in the emergency room. Then he was transported and was booked into the Bay County Jail.

Graham is wanted in Georgia, on a number of charges, including two counts of child molestation.

He was due in court in Georgia on Monday for a bond hearing, but didn't show.

Wednesday, the judge issued warrants for his arrest.

Georgia authorities developed information that he might be here in Bay County.

Wednesday night sheriff's deputies thought they spotted Graham in the Thomas Drive area.

Thursday morning, deputies continued to search the Thomas and South Lagoon Drive areas.

They continued their search yesterday as well, but it seemed every time deputies got close to locking up Graham he got away.

They even seized his car, firearms and all of his personal effects from the sunset inn.

Graham was fired after his arrest in April on charges he was carrying-on a sexual relationship with a juvenile female relative.

Beside the two counts of child molestation, he's also charged with four counts of incest, two counts possession of anabolic steroids, one count possession of steroids with intent to distribute and witness tampering.

Again Graham is in the Bay County Jail, pending his extradition back to Georgia.
