A man wanted in the state of Texas on charges of indecency with a child was arrested Friday in Garberville.

On February 23rd around 11:34 a.m. sheriff’s deputies in southern Humboldt received a tip from the Texas Attorney General’s Office that wanted sex offender Owen Cochran, 28 years old from Waxahachie Texas, was possibly in the Garberville area.

Through an investigation, deputies learned that Cochran was attempting to rent a room at the Lone Pine Motel in Garberville.

Deputies responded to the motel and took Cochran into custody without incident and he was booked into the Humboldt County Correctional Facility for his warrant.
