Deputies arrested a sex offender after he was found hiding in a plastic storage bin inside a Hudson home, according to Pasco County Sheriff’s Office.
Thomas Mock, 37, was found in the bin in the garage at 8132 Sylvan Drive Point, deputies said, after law enforcement received a tip through Crime Stoppers.
Mock was arrested on charges that include failing to register as a sex offender and resisting arrest without violence.
Two others, Steven Peavey, 37, and Danielle Dyer, 27, were charged with harboring a sex offender.
Deputies said Peavey and Dyer didn’t tell law enforcement about Mock when asked if he was inside the home.
