A sex offender wanted for parole violation was arrested Saturday morning in Washington County.
Floyd Henry Deford was previously convicted of first-degree rape. While he is not suspected of committing any new crimes, he is wanted on a felony parole violation warrant for a charge of burglary.
Sheriff’s deputies arrested Deford as he walked on the sidewalk near SW Beaverton-Hillsdale Highway and Scholls Ferry Road around 7:45 a.m. Authorities were tipped off by a 911 call from someone in the area.
