Megan’s Law site helps catch suspected sex offender

This comes from the Arcadia Police Officer’s Association blog. Just happened to notice it a few minutes ago:


A San Gabriel man was arrested today for Lewd Acts with a child after follow-up by APD Detectives. The suspect allegedly stalked and molested a young girl who was in the children’s area of the Border’s Book Store, Westfield Shopping Town, during the morning hours of Saturday, May 17th. A witness rushed to the aid of the young girl, knocking the suspect away. The suspect fled on foot but the crime was caught on video tape.

Unlucky for this predator, a quick thinking witness turned to the internet and helped bring the suspect’s identity to the forefront by locating him through a registrant database. Detectives conducted the follow-up and arrested 33 year old Jaime Elvis Elizondo without incident. Elizondo was booked at APD on one count of PC 288(a).

The state’s Megan’s law database indicates Elizondo lived on Sunset in San Gabriel. He has at least one prior for the same offense according to the state
