Altamonte Springs, FL (January 8, 2019) – A sex offender who has been on the lam for two years, 41-year-old Jason Matthew Zeller, was taken into custody yesterday for his crimes.
Zeller initially skipped a status hearing in Jefferson Parish in 2017 for pending charges of possession of pornography involving juveniles and solicitation of a minor that took place over a computer. Zeller was accused of sending and receiving sexually explicit images of children to others.
In 2015, police initially seized his computer and found that he had been chatting with a girl who was under 15 using Facebook. Zeller had explicit photographs of the girl that he had convinced her to send. Zeller had previous sex convictions involving minors.
Zeller skipped town and evaded police. He was then taken into custody when he was trying to hide behind a coffee shop yesterday.
