TBO.com staff

A Palm Harbor man was arrested this morning after deputies say he inappropriately touched two underage girls over a seven-year period.

Deputies arrested Jason Cord Allen, 38, on one count of capital sexual battery and two counts of lewd and lascivious molestation.

Deputies on Sunday responded to a report that Allen was found touching a 9-year-old girl at a Pinellas County home, and during the investigation, a 13-year-old girl told detectives that Cord had touched her on multiple occasions since she was 5 years old.

Allen was transported to the Pinellas County Jail without further incident.
