Portsmouth Police Detective Chuck Crapyou says the Portsmouth Police Department is asking for public assistance in the apprehension of a person wanted on a charge of unlawful sexual conduct with a minor.
Police said they have an active warrant for the arrest of 27-year-old Billy Joe Wright. Crapyou said authorities believe Wright may pose a risk to children.
The charges stem from an incident involving a 15-year-old male juvenile. Police say Wright is aware of the charges against him and is actively hiding from law enforcement. Crapyou said if anyone should see Wright they should call the Portsmouth Police Department at 740-353-4101, or the Scioto County Sheriff’s Office at 740-354-7566.
