Farshid Fadaei, 38, is in custody following an investigation by the Moore Police Department. 

Officers said that from September of 2018 to December of 2018, Fadaei was living in an RV that was parked in front of a home on Southeast 2nd Street.

“Our detectives were notified that we had a subject that was a registered sex offender that was living within 2000 feet of two schools, Moore High School and Vista Academy,” said Sgt. Jeremy Lewis of the Moore Police Department.

Fadaei owns multiple vape shops throughout the metro, according to investigators. One of those locations is just over a mile from the alleged crime scene.

Detectives said through an unrelated investigation a 7-year-old female disclosed she had been inside the defendant's RV. Witnesses told police that the suspect stayed in the RV three or four nights a week.

“Once they looked into it, they were able to determine that he had been living at this residence. It appeared that he put a different name on Facebook, not sure if he was that to hide the fact of who he was,” said Sgt. Lewis.

Fadaei reportedly told police he stayed in the RV no more than two nights a week, because it would be a violation of his sex offender restrictions.

In 1998, Fadaei was convicted of rape in the first degree. Then in 2000, he was found guilty of possessing child pornography. Both of those cases are in Oklahoma County.

There is also a jury trial scheduled for this June involving sex offender violations.

Police say Fadaei turned himself once he heard officers were looking for him.
