UPDATE: Felony warrants taken out against accused bigamist

NEW HANOVER COUNTY, NC (WECT) - We have an update on a story we first reported in October on WECT.com and Fox Wilmington.

The Wrightsville Beach Police Department has taken out felony warrants for Timothy Pennock - the Army Sergeant accused of bigamy by a Wilmington woman who married him while he was home on leave last spring.

Kelly Butler later found out she wasn't Pennock's first wife - but his fourth. What's more, Pennock was still married to a woman in California. We helped put Butler in touch with investigators, who confirmed her claims, and issued felony bigamy warrants for Pennock's arrest.

Pennock's whereabouts are unknown - but his information has been entered into NCIC, a national criminal database, so that he can be served with felony warrants when authorities are able to locate him.
