Authorities approached an RV trailer, where it was confirmed Childs was living. However, Childs had left the residence just before deputies arrived. A parole search was conducted on Childs’ trailer and deputies said they located a firearm inside. Childs is a convicted felon, which prohibits him from possessing any firearms, according to SCSO.

While deputies were nearby Childs' trailer, another armed and dangerous wanted felon, 25-year-old Camren James Taylor of Anderson, was contacted. Taylor attempted to run but quickly stopped when K-9 Fritz began to bark. Taylor was taken into custody without further incident.

28-year-old Lisa Marie Deaton of Anderson was also located near the trailer. Deputies said Deaton gave a false name to avoid arrest. After her identity was confirmed, she was arrested on her warrants. Deaton and Taylor were booked into the Shasta County Jail.

The Sheriff’s Office is actively looking for Childs and said he is considered armed and dangerous and wanted for his outstanding felony warrants. Anyone with information concerning Childs’ whereabouts, contact the Shasta County Sheriff’s Office at (530) 245-6540.
