“The Monterey County Sheriff’s Office has arrested a Las Lomas man for soliciting sex from two young boys in north Monterey County.
Detectives believe there may be additional victims in the Monterey and Santa Cruz counties, especially in our Hispanic communities.
They say 54-year-old Edgardo DeJesus Castro is known to frequent Watsonville and has several aliases, including Rene Dubon and Edgar Castro.
On Monday, Monterey County Sheriff’s Detectives served a search warrant at Castro’s residence, which resulted in the location of child pornography and methamphetamine. Castro was found to be an out-of-compliance sex offender and a previously deported felon. Castro was previously convicted of sodomizing a 13-year-old boy in Santa Cruz County.”
