A Camden County karate instructor is now facing five additional counts of child molestation.

Thomas Ary, 59, a karate instructor at Pak's Karate Academy's Kingsland location, was arrested last month on one count of child molestation and bonded out of jail.

He was arrested again Monday afternoon in Nassau County, Fla., after being indicted last week on the five additional counts.

Ary's arrest is the result of an investigation by the Georgia Bureau of Investigation. He was being held at the Camden County jail.

Anyone with information about additional victims is urged to call the Camden County Sheriff's Office at 912-729-1442 or 912-510-5174.
