TAOS, N.M. (KRQE) - U.S. marshals have taken down a convicted sex offender accused of molesting four children under the age of 8 at Elephant Butte State Park.
The feds say Thomas Gay befriended a family at a campsite and sexually molested four children.
The family confronted Gay, and he took off.
The marshals got word that Gay was in the Taos area and had moved in under the John Dunn Bridge over the Rio Grande west of Arroyo Hondo.
He was arrested Friday.
Gay has a lengthy criminal history that spans six states over the past three decades.
