YUCCA VALLEY SEX OFFENDER ARRESTED AT RAMONA HALLOWEEN EVENT

An unregistered sex offender from Oregon, living in Yucca Valley, is in custody today after he was caught passing out candy to trick-or-treaters in Ramona last night. San Diego County Sheriff’s Sergeant Brent Strahm said Danny Shaw, 29, of Yucca Valley, was arrested on Main Street and booked into county jail Thursday evening on suspicion of failing to register as a sex offender in California and for being a convicted sex offender in violation of annoying a minor. The Ramona Chamber of Commerce was hosting its annual Main Street Trick or Treat event, during which up to a 1,000 costumed children walk along Main Street collecting candy from merchants. Shaw was approached by deputies responding to reports that a suspicious man was approaching and annoying children at the event. The sergeant said Danny Shaw, by his own admission, moved to Yucca Valley in February and has failed to register as required by law.
