U.S. Marshals use Solar Eclipse to catch sex offender

Posted: Updated:
CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -

The U.S. Marshals say the Solar Eclipse helped them nab a man who failed to register as a sex offender.

Ladarius Blue, 26, is now in custody at the Linn County Jail after he was arrested on Monday.

Those with the U.S. Marshals say they set up surveillance on a Cedar Rapids home they believed he was in; when he came outside to catch a glimpse of the Eclipse, they went to arrest him.

The Marshals say Blue ran, and he was eventually arrested at a home several blocks away.

Blue was arrested as part of "Operation Most Wanted."
