Parolee arrested after months on the run

LAKE COUNTY – A former Lake County resident who has been on the run from parole agents for the last three months was captured Sunday in Redding.


Curtis Dewayne Dodge, 39, was arrested at about 1:40 a.m. Sunday, according to a report from the Redding Police Department.


Dodge has been on the run since March, and when arrested was found without a GPS monitoring anklet which is a condition of his parole, according to the police statement.


The Redding Police Department reported that officers were dispatched to check out a suspicious black 1993 Oldsmobile Achieva parked to the rear of the Dark Side & Tattooing on Pine Street in Redding.


When officers contacted Dodge, he didn't have any identification and gave them a false name. They became suspicious and began an investigation, which led to their identifying Dodge as a parolee at large out of Lake County, Redding Police reported.


Dodge reportedly told officers that he had been in the Redding area for only five days before five days before Redding Police arrested him.


Officials reported that Dodge has an extensive violent criminal background and also is a convicted sex offender.


He was booked into the Shasta County Jail for violation of parole, sex offender registration violation and providing a false identity to a police officer, Redding Police reported.


Information provided by the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation showed that Dodge originally was sent to prison from Madera County, where he was given a four-year sentence for cruelty to a child.


He was placed on parole in 1995, but was returned to prison six times over the next four years on parole violations, the records showed.


In Lake County in 2003 he was sentenced to prison for two charges of possession of a controlled substance and had five more parole violations. That was followed by a December 2006 sentence for the same charge and three more parole violations, the last one in 2009.


Dodge, who was being held without bail, remained at the Shasta County Jail on Monday, jail records showed.
