GARDNERVILLE, NV - A convicted sex offender who fled from California is in custody after being located and arrested in Gardnerville.
The Douglas County Sheriff's Office worked with the Federal Bureau of Investigation to locate 47-year-old Rick David Oliver at a home in the area of Linda Anne Court in Gardnerville's East Valley.
Oliver was convicted in Yuba County for the sexual assault of a minor. He had recently fled California to avoid being caught and sentenced. He also has prior felony convictions for narcotics and sex offenses.

An associate of Oliver's is also in custody. 41-year-old Adrian Dave Froid of Reno was arrested and booked for Obstructing and Delaying an Officer and is being held on a $637.00 bail.
