A 48-year-old registered sex offender was arrested at a Los Angeles area motel after he was accused of making harassing and obscene phone calls to a business associated with children. According to a news report in the Los Angeles Times, police were called to the business after the owner reported receiving several “graphic and sexual telephone calls.” Covina police then put a trace on the business’s phone allowing them to capture the telephone number the next time a call came in. Detectives tracked the phone number to the sex offender registered with the Glendora Police Department. The man was apparently residing in various motels in Los Angeles and Orange counties. His prior offenses include indecent exposure and child annoyance.
