A wanted felon was arrested after allegedly having unlawful sexual intercourse with a minor. 35-year old Zachariah Scott Friedland was found on the 200 block of Huntoon street in Eureka at around 10 Friday morning.
After the public’s help in finding Friedland, deputies surrounded the home and ordered him outside. When he refused, officials made their way in and found Friedland hiding upstairs under a pile of clothes. He was arrested and was booked under outstanding arrest warrants for unlawful sexual intercourse with a minor, and oral copulation with a minor. His bail is set at one hundred ten thousand dollars.
