Weatherford-Parker County Special Crimes Unit investigators arrested a Weatherford man at his place of business in the 2300 block of Tin Top Road, after conducting surveillance in connection with a trailer theft.

The stolen trailer was described as an 18-foot utility trailer with pipe rails, an electric wench and steel wheels.

Weatherford-Parker County Fugitive Apprehension Strike Team (FAST) members arrested a Weatherford man for failing to register as a sex offender.

The charge is equivalent to a Texas felony charge of aggravated sexual assault of a child.

Scarlett absconded to San Antonio, was later apprehended in Lockhart, Texas, and extradited back to Minnesota to serve eight months in jail, before returning to Texas sometime in late 2005.

SCU arrest five for drug charges

SCU investigators said the homeowner/occupant was not present at the time they conducted a search warrant, which stemmed from a narcotics investigation at the residence.
