A 29-year-old man accused of molesting two children several years ago has been arrested in Orange County, authorities said.
Eddrans Ortega-Hernandez was arrested Monday at a Santa Ana business following an "extensive investigation" by a task force of local and federal law enforcement agencies, the Riverside County Sheriff's Department said in a statement Tuesday.
Ortega-Hernandez is accused of molesting two children under the age of 14 between 2004 and 2008 in Moreno Valley, and was wanted on a $3-million warrant, authorities said.
A team from the Pacific Southwest Regional Fugitive Task Force found Ortega-Hernandez hiding in Santa Ana and arrested him after conducting surveillance at his home, officials said.
Ortega-Hernandez, a mechanic, had methamphetamine in his possession when he was arrested, officials said. He was booked at Orange County’s Central Men's Jail and was held without bail, according to jail records.
