Two sex offenders arrested


May 22, 2007|By JULIE SCHARPER

Two homeless, registered sex offenders who had been sought by authorities after failing to report their whereabouts were arrested yesterday, police said.

Ronald Roland Ellison called police and said he had cases stemming from unrelated matters in District Court in Towson and was taken into custody there, county police spokesman Bill Toohey said. Ellison, 28, was convicted of a third-degree sex offense in 1999 and had previously registered, giving an address in the 6700 block of Townbrook Drive in the Woodlawn area.

Thomas Joseph Gauthier turned himself in at the North Point Precinct station yesterday, Toohey said. Gauthier, 27, was convicted in 1996 of attempted second-degree rape and sentenced to eight years in prison. After his release, he gave authorities an address in the first block of Oak Grove Drive in the Middle River area.

Both reported last October that they were homeless, and both briefly stayed in touch with police. But authorities said last week that they had not heard from either in months.
