A 69-year-old Lompoc Valley man was arrested last week on two counts of child molestation charges, according to the Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Department.

Conrad Bruce Nickerson was arrested Aug. 31 at his residence in the unincorporated area of Lompoc, Sheriff’s Department spokeswoman Kelly Hoover said. He was booked into Santa Barbara County Jail on suspicion of molesting two female juveniles over the course of several years, Hoover said.

He posted bail, which was set at $200,000, and was released from custody the same day, Hoover said.
