WAHOO, Neb. -

A Cleveland, Oklahoma, couple wanted on suspicion of child molestation and sexual abuse have been arrested in the eastern Nebraska town of Wahoo.

Omaha television station KETV reports that 34-year-old David Ray Meyer Jr. and 30-year-old Kaylynn Dee Meyer were arrested Friday by the U.S. Marshals Metro Fugitive Task Force. Authorities say they were found at a Wahoo home belonging to them.

The couple have been on the run from authorities since September.

The Pawnee County Sheriff's Office in Oklahoma says the two have been charged with molestation and permitting child sexual abuse. Officials believe David Meyer sexually abused three young children and his wife was present and allowed the abuse to happen.

According to affidavits filed in Pawnee County District Court, the biological father of two of the children reported the abuse to the Department of Human Services. In July 2012, on a referral from DHS, the matter was originally investigated by Cleveland Police Chief Clinton Stout, who, at that time, was a Pawnee County sheriff's deputy.

Stout told the Cleveland American he later reviewed videos of interviews conducted with the children by the Child Abuse Network in Tulsa. Stout's report states that in one alleged incident, the 6-year-old told the interviewer her mother watched and encouraged the sexual abuse.

The couple is being held in the Saunders County Jail in Nebraska without bond while awaiting extradition to Oklahoma.
