Posted on Saturday, August 9, 2014 12:21pm

A man wanted in Utah on charges he sexually abused a child has been arrested in Santa Barbara County.

Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s deputies investigating a routine call in the Lompoc area in July learned Jose Luis Coronado was in the area.  After a three week long investigation, they finally found, and arrested the 52 year old man.

Detectives say they found Coronado had lived in Santa Barbara, and Lompoc since fleeing Utah in 2012.  They say they are concerned he may have committed similar offenses in Santa Barbara County.
