WANTED – Ronald William Collins – sexually violent offender


Marion County authorities are seeking a sexually violent offender who was last thought to be in northeast Salem Aug. 26, officials said Wednesday.

Ronald William Collins, 62, was last known to be near Lancaster Drive and Center Street NE when he cut an electronic monitoring device off his ankle and stopped reporting to his probation deputy, Marion County sheriff’s spokeswoman Lt. Sheila Lorance said.

Collins was last known to be living in the Salem area and unemployed. He has a history of sexually abusing boys who are known to him, Lorance said.

Collins was convicted of first-degree sodomy and first-degree sex abuse in 1995.

The reported incidents happened in 1992, court records show. He was sentenced to serve 154 months — about 13 years — in prison.

Collins was released from prison in June and has been on a 24-hour monitoring device that uses GPS, Lorance said.

He was designated by the Oregon state parole board as a sexually violent sex offender, one of the few designated as such in the state, Lorance said.

Collins is white, 6 feet 2 inches tall, 168 pounds and has brown hair and blue eyes.

His probation restrictions include not having any contact with children, not to frequent any places where there are children and not to use alcohol.

The public is asked not to make contact with him but to call authorities immediately, Lorance said.
