Suspected sex offender arrested after 12 years

TILLMAN COUNTY, Okla._The Tillman County Sheriff's department says a suspected sex offender has been arrested after 12 years on the run.

Lloyd Crossland, Jr. vanished back in 2003 after he was charged with lewd molestation. Sheriff Bobby Whittington told seven news Friday night that he received tips last month that Crossland could be in North Texas. He relayed that information to the U.S. Marshal's office, and they arrested him in Tarrant County.

Crossland is currently in the Tarrant County Jail until authorities clear the way for him to be brought to Oklahoma to face the lewd molestation charge.
