Convicted sex offender fugitive Adrian Hill from a photo on
his Facebook pag
Michigan State Police arrested Adrian Hill Wednesday night in Jackson,
police say. He was picked up on two warrants. The first was a warrant issued

operating a vehicle without a driver?s license.
Cops say they sought multiple warrants in October for Hill?s multiple
failures to register.
Hill, 37, made little effort to conceal his identity or location, which were
easily uncovered by a Michigan Messenger investigation. The information
about Hill was discovered on publicly available websites including Facebook,
where Hill maintained a page under his own name, using his actual birth

event to feed the homeless at a community center frequented by many of
Lansing?s poorest youth. The profile also indicates Hill had been running a
non-profit ministry reaching out to support the disabled and their families.
Most chilling of all, Hill is pictured on his Facebook page with a young
child in his lap.
Hill?s Facebook account has since been deleted.
Hill successfully completed his probation from his 2005 conviction of
accosting a minor for immoral purposes. As a result, he had no restrictions
on where he could go, or who he could be around.
Lansing Police say they have been tracking Hill for some time, but that he
was ?always one step ahead of us.?
Police say his conviction resulted from a sting operation in which he sent
an undercover officer whom Hill thought was a minor pornography via the
