OR- Fake sex-offender flier targets innocent man, police say

7-11-2008 Oregon:
CEDAR HILLS - An apparently "official" notification saying that a predatory sex offender was moving into the Cedar Hills area was fake, a spokesman for the Washington County Sheriff's Office said today.

The notice, which was contained in a flier that was distributed last weekend in the Cedar Hills area gave the name of man it claimed was a sex offender. In fact, the man named in the bulletin has never been arrested and isn't wanted by police.

Sgt. David Thompson, spokesman for the sheriff's office, said the man, whom he declined to name, has never been arrested by any police agency in any state.

Anyone with information about the individuals behind the phony flier is asked to call Detective Chuck Anderson of the Washington County Sheriff's Office at 503-846-2704. ..News Source.. by John Snell
