The San Benito County Sheriff’s Office announced the arrest of two wanted felons Friday in the Ridgemark community, including one on parole for sex trafficking of minors.
According to an announcement from the sheriff’s office:
Two wanted felons were apprehended today in the community of Ridgemark. State Parole tracked a fugitive to a home on Sonny’s Way. That male is Chinedu Nwuzi, age 34, and is on CDCR parole for sex offenses that include sex-trafficking of minors.
He was being harbored by Stephen Bullen, 36, who had a felony warrant of his own! Bullen is the adult son of the homeowner. There was evidence of weapons possession, narcotics/drug use and pornography in the home. A search warrant is being authored for a complete search of the home now.
We want the residents of the community of Ridgemark to know there is no current threat, but we will be present at the home for a few hours. Both men are being booked into the San Benito County Jail.
