ST. GEORGE — Two convicted felons were arrested Friday night following a month-long investigation into reports of harassment, road blockages and civilian traffic stops for speeding.

Washington County sheriff's deputies arrested Justin Lyle Norwood and Robert Joseph Clack, both 37, Friday in the Dalton Wash area of Virgin and each faces one third-degree felony count of failing to register as a sex offender, according to charging documents filed with the court.

Norwood also faces a misdemeanor count of criminal mischief, while Clack faces a third-degree felony count of possession with intent to distribute a controlled substance and misdemeanor possession of paraphernalia.

They were later determined to be non-compliant sex offenders from Oregon.

The arrest stems from an investigation that began in June when deputies were asked to follow up on reports involving a group of individuals who were blocking access to Dalton Wash Road, which is one of the roadways leading up to a number of luxury vacation rentals in the area. They were digging two deep ditches in the road to act as speed bumps and were reportedly harassing the employees of the rental company.
