NEWPORT, OR (KPTV) -
Newport police arrested five people in the search for a wanted sex offender, along with eventually tracking down the main suspect hiding in a closet.
Lincoln County Parole and Probation requested help locating Jose Frede Rodriguez-Aguilar, also known as Freddy, 24, of Newport, last week.
He is a convicted sex offender wanted on a parole violation warrant.
On Thursday, Newport police arrested two people at one location while searching for Rodriguez-Aguilar. Ronald Larson, 20, of Newport was arrested on an outstanding probation violation warrant and a misdemeanor warrant for failure to appear in court.
He was taken to jail with bail set at $100,000.
At the same location, Tori Williams, 20, of Newport, was also arrested on a probation violation detainer. She was also arrested for unlawful possession of a controlled substance - methamphetamine. A suspected stolen gun was also seized at the home.
Williams was not offered bail.
At a second location, Newport police said they found Rodriguez-Aguilar hiding in a closet. He was taken to jail, and no bail was offered.
At that same home, three additional people were arrested. Adam Anderson, 29, of Newport, James Mistele, 22, of Newport and Sara McClaugherty, 30, of Newport, are all accused of hindering prosecution by helping hide Rodriguez-Aguilar in the closet.
Anderson and McClaughtery had bail set at $50,000 and Mistele's bail was set at $100,000. McClaughtery has been released from jail, according to the Lincoln County Jail's inmate roster.
