U.S. Marshals catch sex offender in North Jackson

Posted: Updated:

NORTH JACKSON, Ohio - U.S. Marshals track down a wanted man, finally catching up with him at an apartment in North Jackson.

Authorities tell 21 news that they converged on the apartment building on State Route 45 Tuesday morning to arrest 41-year-old Bryan Dilling for a drug warrant and probation violation.

Investigators say Dilling crawled through the ceiling, attempting to gain access to another apartment to hide from authorities.

"For three hours they looked, canines, Liberty dogs, Sheriff, U.S. Marshals, DEA; Everybody was here. And then they finally caught him. They caught him at the very end apartment up in the rafters." said resident Brandy Thompson.

Marshals cornered Dilling and apprehended him. 

In 2012, Dilling pleaded guilty to gross sexual imposition in Columbiana County court. The victim was a 17 year old girl with mental disabilities.

Dilling was sentenced to one-and-a-half years in prison, but was released on probation. He is also required to register as a sex offender.

After today's search, Dilling faces three burglary charges filed by the Jackson Police Department.

According to a news release from Jackson Township Police Chief Ken Frost, authorities believe Dilling was staying with 29-year old Collena Carpenter. Officers say that in Carpenter's apartment, they found drug paraphernalia which Chief Frost says could be used to prepare metaphor.

Carpenter will be charged with obstructing justice, and illegal assembly or possession of chemicals to manufacture drugs.
