CONCORD, N.C. (WBTV) - A Charlotte man who had volunteered with the Civil Air Patrol organization is in the Cabarrus County jail under $500,000 bond after being charged with sex crimes.

According to arrest warrants obtained by WBTV, David Joseph Greenberg, 35, of Charlotte, was charged with two felony counts of taking indecent liberties with a child.

The warrants state that Greenberg "did commit and attempt to commit a lewd and lascivious act upon the body" of an alleged victim who was under the age of 16 at the time. Greenberg was charged by investigators with the Cabarrus County Sheriff's Department.

According to investigators, there are two alleged victims that have come forward in the case.

The parents of one alleged victim went to the Cabarrus County Sheriff's Office on July 3 and an investigation began.

Investigators say Greenberg knew the alleged victims through his role with the Civil Air Patrol, but say all the alleged indecencies happened in Cabarrus County.

The Civil Air Patrol is the civilian auxiliary of the United States Air Force and aids in search and rescue, disaster relief, and aerospace education for the general public.

The CAP office in Charlotte is located near the Charlotte-Douglas International Airport.

Sheriff Brad Riley said that he expects that other agencies/jurisdictions may be bringing additional charges.
