Fugitive sex offender caught in Southeast Texas

MONTGOMERY COUNTY - From KHOU TV and www.khou.com - A sex offender from Ohio was taken into custody at an RV park north of Houston late Wednesday night, Montgomery County deputies said.


Shane Trumble, 23, was said to be originally from the Cleveland, Ohio area but was living with his grandmother and dad at the Wild Country RV Park on FM 1485.


Officials said Trumble was wanted for sex offenses against children in Ohio, and he failed to register as a sex offender when he moved to Texas in June 2012.


Acting on a warrant out of Ohio, Montgomery County Precinct 4 and Precinct 3 deputies conducted a search of Trumble’s property late Wednesday night. They said they found nearly 30 gigabytes of child pornography on at least one computer along with young girl’s panties and bras in a trash can.


"Through the course of that investigation we were able to confirm that there were several images of small children performing sex acts," said Captain Mark Seals with Pct. 4.


Trumble was taken into custody and now faces 4-counts of possession of child pornography with a $100,000 bond on each.


Officials said Trumble's grandmother was also taken into custody after approaching deputies with a BB gun, demanding to see their badges.
