KLAMATH COUNTY, Ore. — A sex offender wanted on 22 sex crimes counts in Arizona was arrested Wednesday afternoon at a campground near Klamath Falls.

65-year-old Eric George McNeill was taken into custody in an effort by U.S. Marshals, Oregon State Police and the Klamath Falls Police Department. His case was profiled on America’s Most Wanted earlier in September and tips led to his discovery in southern Oregon.

He was arrested and is awaiting extradition to Arizona as of Friday morning. OSP warns there may be additional cases, so the public is asked to look at McNeill’s picture and be aware he was driving a 1987 4-door, maroon Pontiac Bonneville with Washington plates (223 YJJ).
