A man wanted by the state of Texas on charges of indecency with a child was arrested Friday in Garberville.
On Feb. 23, 2018, at about 11:45 a.m., sheriff’s deputies in Southern Humboldt received a tip from the Texas Attorney General’s Office that wanted sex offender Lance Owen Cochran, 28, of Waxahachie, TX, was possibly in the Garberville area.
During the course of their investigation, deputies learned that Cochran was attempting to book a room at the Lone Pine Motel in Garberville. Deputies responded to the business and located Cochran leaving the property.
Cochran was taken into custody without incident and was booked into the Humboldt County Correctional Facility for his warrant.
