High Risk sex offender arrested thanks to community help
WACO -- A high-risk sex offender in Waco is captured six days after exposing himself to a young child.
Mario Estrada, 51, has been charged with indecency to a child after exposing himself to a 9-year-old girl on July 4th.
Police tell us it happened at a Laundromat on the 2900 block of Robinson drive.
Once police released the surveillance photos several people called crime stoppers to confirm his identity.
"The community came together with us and helped us get a criminal off the street that we now know is a high risk offender. The potential for this guy to do this again was great, and as it shows he did do it again," Sgt. Patrick Swanton with the Waco Police Department said.
Estrada was arrested late last night at his home in South Waco.
