Sex Offender Found Living In Hole Behind Elementary School

A sex offender wanted by the Virginia State Police was arrested after he was found in a wooded area behind Mary Lee Clark Elementary School, where he was apparently living in a hole, according to a WJXT-TV report.

Timothy Primrose, 50, of Virginia Beach, was being held and expected to be extradited back to Virginia.

Primrose is a registered sex offender who was convicted in 1996 of attempted rape, forcible sodomy and taking indecent liberties with children in Virginia, according to the report.

St. Marys police said they received a tip about suspicious activity and followed an SUV to the area. Cpl. Shannon Brock and Oficer Christopher Snyder found Primrose in the hole, which was 4 feet wide, 8 feet long and 6 feet deep.

According to Virginia's sex offender database, Primrose was employed by a Virginia Beach plumbing company.

Primrose's daughter and her family live in the area. Police suspect someone had been delivering food to Primrose, and police said the investigation into who may have aided Primrose was continuing.Full Story Here
