ALOHA, OR (KPTV) – Deputies in Washington County are asking for help finding a man they say cut off his ankle monitor.

Josiah Rosales, 29, cut off the monitor fled from law enforcement on foot from the 17800 block of Southwest Breckenridge Lane in Aloha.

Rosales posted $125,000 bail last month after being arrested for 18 sex crimes against minors, according to the Washington County Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies say Rosales had several conditions associated with his release, including wearing a GPS ankle monitor at all times.

Tuesday afternoon, detectives were notified that Rosales had cut off the ankle monitor. Detectives, deputies and a K-9 unit searched for Rosales but were not able to locate him.

Deputies are actively searching the area for Rosales, who they say stands about 5-feet-9-inches tall and weighs approximately 300 pounds.

Rosales has a felony warrant out for his arrest. Deputies say if you see Rosales or know where he is, call 911 and do not approach him.

Im confused, why was he allowed to post bail? Makes me wonder if whoever let him out has children. Its total lack of concern. Not just one, but 18 innocent children suffered devastating lifetime trauma from this “person” and he is allowed to post bail? Whose kid will be his next victim? Is the safety of our children less important than money? Why does a tracking device ensure safety? Its basically an unpunished crime when a sex offender strikes, gets caught, gets out and does it again. In my opinion He should never get out. It makes no sense and something needs to change!

never should have been given a '2nd' chance, 18 times, the judge has blood on his hands


Money talks and sex offenders walk!


18 arrests and he was out with an ankle monitor???????


5’9”, 300 lbs? Not running too fast.


Dare we look at the border? Cheaper for us there than in prison here.


Is there a reason, for creeps like him accused of molestation, that they can't put solid steel ankle monitors on them?
