Police arrested a 65-year-old man Thursday in connection with the molestation of four children in Morgan Hill.

The Santa Clara County District Attorney's Office filed eight counts of child molestation with special circumstances against Morgan Hill resident Miguel Saucedo Delgado on Thursday and a $500,000 warrant was issued for his arrest, police said.

As part of the investigation, Morgan Hill police served a search warrant at Delgado's residence at about 1:20 p.m. and seized numerous items of evidence.

While Delgado was not home during the search of his residence, he was contacted by investigators a short time later and surrendered to police.

Three of the four victims were still juveniles at the time the incidents were reported to police. The victims told police Delgado sexually abused them while they resided in Morgan Hill and were between 5 and 13 years old.
