Sex offender wanted in Utah arrested in California

LOMPOC, Calif. (AP) -- Authorities on California's Central Coast have arrested a man wanted in Utah for the last two years for alleged sexual abuse of a child.

A Santa Barbara County Sheriff's spokeswoman said Saturday that deputies arrested 52-year-old Jose Luis Coronado at his workplace a day earlier.

Kelly Hoover said deputies had been looking for Coronado since learning in mid-July that he was somewhere in the Mission Hills community north of Lompoc.

Hoover said he's been wanted in Draper, Utah since 2012 for aggravated sexual abuse of a child, but she didn't have further details about the case.

A call to a Draper Police Department spokesman has not been returned.

Investigators are concerned Coronado may have committed similar crimes in the county, where he has been living since fleeing Utah.
