Man Arrested for Hiding Runaway Teens

Investigators say 30-year-old Gerald Clemons hid the teens behind hollowed out furniture at his home on Gibbs Drive.

Tallahassee police began their investigation in September when a runaway was found at Clemons' home. At the time he was told not to do it again.

But Leon County sheriff's investigators got a tip that he didn't heed the advice.

OFC Lyman Babcock with the Leon County Sheriff's Office says, "We went to the house and Mr. Clemons consented to us going in the house, and lo and behold we found another young lady hiding behind a hollowed out dresser."

Clemons is charged with three counts of contributing to the dependency of a minor.
