Linn County Deputies said they have captured a high-risk sex offender who was wanted in Hillsboro.

The Washington County Sheriff’s Office said on Friday it was looking for Dustin Westling after he took off his GPS monitoring bracelet and took off.

A deputy from Linn County found Westling outside of Lebanon at around 9:30 Friday night and arrested him.

He’s expected to be transported back to Washington County in the coming days.
