Man arrested in Idaho on Carson lewdness warrant

Staff report

A man arrested in Idaho on a Carson City warrant for child molestation was back in Nevada on Friday.

Royal Jesse Vrenon, 59, formerly of 1405 N. Edmonds Drive, was booked into the Carson City Jail at 9:45 p.m. Thursday on suspicion of felony lewdness with a child under 14. He also faces a misdemeanor Alternative Sentencing warrant for failing to appear in court on a drunken driving charge.

According to the Carson City Sheriff’s Department report taken in January, Vrenon is suspected of repeatedly molesting a 9-year-old girl over the course of two years. The girl’s teenage brother told police he caught Vrenon assaulting the girl on at least three different occasions, the report states.

Vrenon was picked up in Boise, Idaho on July 20, but the circumstances of that arrest were unavailable.

He is also awaiting prosecution on a charge of drunken driving stemming from his arrest December 20 when he drove through the front of Curves gym on Winnie Lane.

Vrenon is being held on $250,000 bail.
