SAN LEON — A sex offender sought since 2006 on a Florida warrant was captured at his home in San Leon, authorities said Wednesday.

Bond for Randolph Carroll Flinn, 50, was denied bond on a fugitive from justice hold related to allegations he violated his probation in Santa Rosa County in Florida.

Flinn was originally charged in Florida in relation to a case that involved lewd and lascivious conduct with a child, Maj. Ray Tuttoilmondo, a spokesman for the Galveston County Sheriff’s Office, said in a statement released Wednesday afternoon.

Flinn came to the attention of the sheriff’s office during an investigation into possible fraudulent activities involving the elderly, Tuttoilmondo said.

Deputies and the U.S. Marshals Service arrested Flinn Tuesday morning in the 2400 block of Bayshore Drive. Deputies accused him of trying to use a false name to elude capture, Tuttoilmondo said.

Flinn is a sex offender registered in Florida, the state’s online records show, and was last under the supervision of the Florida Department of Corrections.

The sheriff’s office had no information on what brought Flinn to Galveston County.

Flinn remained jailed Wednesday without bond, pending hearings related to his extradition to Florida, Tuttoilmondo said.

I sure hope Florida thinks enough of this fella to come get him..... otherwise he will be back in San Leon.

Course I must say - I'm shocked, shocked at the realization that a sex offender would be living in San Leon.......[scared]
