Removing tracking device lands convicted sex offender in jail
A 35-year-old convicted sex offender evicted last week from a Ramona home he was renting was in jail this week, following his arrest last Thursday in Poway.
According to Lt. Duncan Fraser with the sheriff’s Ramona Substation, Robert Jack disabled and then removed the GPS tracking device he was required to wear as a condition of his parole, triggering action from the SAFE (Sexual Assault Felony Enforcement Task Force) team and Poway deputies.
Jack became the focus of concern in Ramona when parents learned he was listed on the Web as a serious sex offender and was living on Watt Road in San Diego Country Estates. The home is between the two elementary schools in the Estates, and an e-mail and telephone campaign began to get him out.
The person renting to Jack reported evicting him after hearing the concerns of area residents.
Because he violated a condition of his parole by removing the tracking device, Jack must go before a parole board, said Fraser.
