CLAY COUNTY, Fla. (WDTN) – A Columbus man wanted for child sex crimes has been arrested in Florida.

The U.S. Marshal’s Service and the Clay County Sheriff’s Office received a tip that 50-year-old Clarence Sheese Jr. was living at a residence in the area.

“We thought it was pretty clear, our community won’t tolerate criminal behavior. Especially concerning fugitives who flee from other states into Clay County, because they are wanted for child sex crimes. Clarence Sheese, your decision to flee here was a bad one,” the Clay County Sheriff’s Office said in a Facebook post.

He was wanted for two counts of rape and one count of gross sexual imposition.
