Thomas Lee Nickels – Repeat Sex Offender – Trolling the Net for Victims

“Yes.” said Nickels’ mom. “We’re pretty sure
we’ve reached the pinnacle. He has to do time.”


In an investigation similar to the ones seen on “Dateline NBC’s Top Catch a Predator,” Hamilton county’s Cyber Crimes Task Force surfs the web. Agents pose as teens. Sex chats start with adults and suspects are arrested. Those chats on the Internet helped police net Thomas Lee Nickels.

Sgt. Gerry Hepp with Fishers Police says “The task force arrested 3 people. Mr. Nickels is someone who caught our attention after the arrest.”

In one week here, officers made three arrests, Kevin Livengood, screen name “running naked”, Michael Nyberg and Thomas Nickels.

Sgt. Hepp says “We found that he was a registered sex offender. He physically harmed a child in 2003.”

A 2003 police report shows the victim, who was only nine, was sexually molested and shown child porn on the Internet. Now, five years later, Hepp says “He can go home in the privacy of wherever he is and look for potential victims again.”

In 2003 The court ordered Nickels to stay on the sex offender registry for life. Then this month, Police found Nickels in the chat rooms, seeking oral sex and more, with what he thought was a 14-year-old girl.

Flooding washed out one planned meet with the undercover cops. But last week Nickels turned up for a second one and police busted him.

The suspect’s neighbor Joe Mentink says “That is frightening because we have a lot of young people in this complex.” Nickels’ neighbors discovered him on the state sex offender registry months ago and spread the word.

They value the web site.

“That has been a godsend,” say Mentink. “We really like that. And you check that, yes, yes.”

The suspect’s mother was packing up his condo Wednesday night. We asked if her son has a problem. Effie Nickels said “Apparently. Now it’s come to an end.” She says Nickels did no prison time in 2003.

“Does he have remorse, does he regret this?”, we asked.

“Yes.” said Nickels’ mom. “We’re pretty sure we’ve reached the pinnacle. He has to do time.”

Irvine G. Oelke Sr. – 73 year old Repeat Sex Offender

“If the defendant is still attempting to abduct children
at the age of 73, he is still a threat
and should go to jail, regardless of his age”

Oelke was convicted in 2004 of sex abuse of a minor for
inappropriately touching a 3-year-old girl

Irvine G. Oelke Sr., told a judge Tuesday that he hadn’t intended to harm the little girl he invited into his car one warm evening last summer — that he was only “being friendly” when he asked if she wanted to get some ice cream with him.

The explanation from the convicted sex offender did not sway the judge.

“If the defendant is still attempting to abduct children at the age of 73, he is still a threat and should go to jail, regardless of his age,” Baltimore County Circuit Judge H. Patrick Stringer Jr. said.

He sentenced Oelke to seven years in prison — even more than the prosecutor had requested and much more than the supervised probation that a defense attorney argued would be appropriate for the retiree with health problems.

“I shudder to think what could have happened had this little girl gotten into the car,” the judge said, adding that Emily Tuzzolo’s parents had obviously taught her well about the hazards of talking to strangers. “But for that, I’m not sure what would have happened.”

The sentencing hearing brought to a close a case in which police and prosecutors say the girl’s parents and neighbors in the close-knit block of Dundalk families did everything right.

Neighbors watching as the man stopped his dark sedan at dusk to talk to the little girl on her pink bike took note of the man and his car.

They called the police.

And when Emily’s mother produced a police-like photo array of men living within two miles of their Dundalk neighborhood from the state’s Sex Offender Registry, two neighbors and Emily all picked out Oelke.

“On that day, you, sir, came to the wrong neighborhood,” Emily’s mother, Lucinda Tuzzolo, wrote in a letter to the defendant that the prosecutor read aloud at the sentencing hearing.

“This is a community that came together and will always work together to keep people like you off our block.”

It was nearly dusk on Aug. 15 when Emily climbed out of her family’s backyard pool, changed her clothes and set off on her new bicycle to find her friend, who lives at the end of her block.

There, at the corner of Patapsco and West Dundalk avenues, the friend’s father was watching his nine children.

He was still watching when a man in a dark sedan and a dark baseball cap pulled up to the stop sign and started talking to Emily.

The girl, who was 6 at the time, later told police that the stranger asked whether she had a brother and offered her ice cream if she got into his car, according to court records. Emily did not answer the man. Instead, she climbed back on her bike and pedaled away.

Across the street, another neighbor had just stepped off a bus when she saw the dark sedan parked at the corner. She later told police that she got a good look at the car — and the man at the wheel — as he drove off.

Both neighbors identified Oelke as the man who approached Emily, first in the images that her mother printed off the state’s Sex Offender Registry and then in a photo array by police.

Oelke was convicted in Cecil County in 2004 of sex abuse of a minor for inappropriately touching a 3-year-old girl and sentenced to 18 months in jail and 18 months of supervised probation.

In April, he entered an Alford plea in the Baltimore County case, in which he acknowledged that prosecutors had enough evidence to convict him of attempted child kidnapping without admitting guilt.

Defense attorney Kimberley P. McGee told the judge Tuesday that her client did so because although he admits that he spoke to Emily and asked if she wanted ice cream, but that he maintains that he didn’t intend to take her anywhere or hurt her.

Oelke retired at age 62, after spending four years in the Navy and working a series of jobs as a truck driver, accounting clerk and a housekeeper at an apartment complex, McGee said. His wife died of cancer in 2000, leaving him depressed and lonely, and he suffered a stroke in 2005, the defense attorney said.

McGee told the judge that her client’s 80-year-old sister explained that the stroke left her brother without “a filter” that might otherwise keep him from saying or doing certain things.

Given a chance to address the judge, Oelke asked his attorney where in the nearly empty courtroom the victim’s parents were sitting.

“I want to apologize for frightening you,” he said, turning to face them. “I meant no harm. I was just being friendly.”

Lucinda Tuzzolo broke down in tears and turned as far away from Oelke as she could, while her husband, Bobby Tuzzolo, simply stared at the man.

Prosecutor Stephanie Porter told the judge that Oelke’s explanation — that he was on his way that evening to a Royal Farms store for ice cream and thought to invite the little girl when he saw her — doesn’t make sense.

Reminding the judge that Emily was approached on a one-way street that serves as more of an alley off the main road, she said, “There is no reason to go up that side street unless you live there or had a specific reason. I would suggest that he went up there for the specific reason to find Emily or someone like her. … I don’t believe the community is safe with him in it.”

The prosecutor asked the judge to sentence Oelke to five years in prison.

Stringer, the judge, said he was most concerned with protecting the community’s children and deterring the defendant — and others — from “preying on children.”

He sentenced Oelke to 10 years in prison, suspending all but seven years of that term. He also ordered that Oelke serve three years of probation upon his release and have no contact with anyone under the age of 18.

Angelo Collado – Repeat Sex Offender – Hiding in the bushes……..

Collado was classified as a sexual predator after his 1994 conviction for attempting to rape a boy. Collado served 13 years in prison before his release last year. Records show he is still under the supervision of the Adult Parole Authority.


A 33-year-old sexual predator living in Lorain, accused of videotaping a woman and her 10-year-old daughter at Lakeview Park beach ,was arraigned Monday. Angelo Colladois charged with two counts of voyeurism and obstructing official business. He initially pleaded no contest, but changed the plea to not guilty after a public defender was assigned to his case. Lorain Police were called to the beach Saturday when someone complained that a man was videotaping children at the beach. Collado was arrested after officers found him hiding in overgrown weeds with a video camera. Collado denied the camera was his and said he found it.

When police turned the camera on they found four videos, according to the report.

The first was of a woman on the beach that zoomed in on her rear end.

The second was of a young girl and that also zoomed in on her rear.

The third video was footage of a bathroom stall at the beach. Although no people appeared in this video, officers identified the coat of the man holding the camera as Collado’s.

The fourth video showed Collado getting into his tub at home. He waved at the camera and then masturbated.

The woman in the first film was upset when police informed her of the footage. Two witnesses told police that they saw Collado taping the woman.

Collado was classified as a sexual predator after his 1994 conviction for attempting to rape a boy. Collado served 13 years in prison before his release last year. Records show he is still under the supervision of the Adult Parole Authority.

His bond was set at $7,500.

If convicted of all charges he faces a maximum of 90 days in jail or $750 fine for the obstruction charge and up to 60 days or $500 for each of the voyeurism charges. His pre-trial date is scheduled for Thursday.

The new charges are misdemeanors, but he could be sent back to prison for violating the conditions of parole.
