Sonora, CA — 44 year old Clayton Dean Hill was arrested Friday afternoon by Sheriff´s Department Deputy Brandon Lowry and arrested for failure to register as a sex offender.
Lowry stopped a 2006 GMC van that was driving suspiciously in the area of Jamestown School. At the time of his arrest Hill was wearing a red and black children´s type marching band uniform. Inside the van deputies discovered stuffed animals, a collection of toys, a variety of photos depicting children in various stages of play and video tapes. One tape proved to be a pornographic movie. Hill is a registered sex offender in Calaveras County but had not registered his current address which may be either Twain Harte or Modesto.
Hill was booked in the County Jail and is being held on $50,000 bail.
