News Release
Monroe Arrest Warrant Served (Photo) - 12/05/17

CORVALLIS, Ore. -- On Monday, December 4, 2017, at approximately 6:00pm, deputies with the Benton County Sheriff's Office arrested Jose Carlos Villa-Garcia, 30, on a confirmed warrant for three sex abuse charges.

Villa-Garcia, who at the time was a Monroe Volunteer Firefighter, was originally arrested on May 15, 2016, charged with Sex Abuse in the Third Degree and Official Misconduct, after a report was made to our office about him having sexual relations with a minor.

He was released from jail with a Grand Jury date in May, 2017. When he did not appear for court, an arrest warrant was issued for his arrest.

Benton County Sheriff's Office attempted numerous times to serve the warrant over the last few months. Yesterday they were successful, when three deputies arrived at his residence in Monroe to serve the warrant.

The arrestee complied and was lodged and booked at the Benton County Jail in Corvallis with a bond of $100,000.

Jose Carlos Villa-Garcia has been charged with two counts of Sex Abuse II, one Sex Abuse III offence.
