SAN MATEO COUNTY (BCN) — A man suspected of child molestation since 2014 was arrested last week after more victims came forward alleging he molested them at his Pescadero home between 1999 and 2013, according to the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office.

Daniel Miranda, 66, surrendered after deputies served a search warrant at his home in the 4900 block of Pescadero Creek Road on Wednesday, according to the sheriff’s office. He was booked into jail on $6.4 million bail.

San Mateo County Children and Family Services officials first alerted the sheriff’s office to Miranda in November 2014. Investigators looked into allegations that he had molested a young girl, but didn’t have sufficient evidence to charge him with a crime, according to the sheriff’s office.

But investigators re-opened the investigation in June when another young girl came forward and said she had been molested. The sheriff’s office found three more victims, making a total of five girls in their teens or pre-teens who said Miranda molested them at his home between 1999 and 2013, according to the sheriff’s office.

Sheriff’s officials think more victims may not have come forward yet and are asking anyone with information about the case to call Detective Joe Cang at (650) 259-2417 or to email him at jcang@smcgov.org.
