SPARTANBURG COUNTY, S.C. (WSPA) – A Spartanburg County man was arrested Wednesday following a months long investigation.
According to the Spartanburg County Sheriff’s Office, Zyran Izae Stroble, 18, was arrested without incident after an investigation beginning on August 19, 2022 revealed evidence of sexual misconduct against minors.
The Special Victim’s Unit of the sheriff’s office conducted interviews with five potential victims. Of the five, two of the juveniles made credible disclosures of sexual acts against them.
