LLANO, Texas (KXAN) — A Llano county dispatcher was arrested over the weekend, accused of helping her fugitive son avoid arrest.
Kathy Osbourn, 62, of Llano, was charged with hindering apprehension or prosecution of a known felon, a third degree felony. She turned herself in on Saturday, Aug. 6 and was released on bond the same day.
Her son, 32-year-old Kaleb Osbourn, is wanted on a “blue warrant” for a parole violation. The Llano County Sheriff’s Office says the department began its search for Kaleb on Aug. 3 after they received a call he was at the family’s ranch on N. State Highway 16.
Llano deputies, a DPS helicopter and other law enforcement agencies searched for the man for several hours. Deputies say he has evaded capture in the same area twice over the past few weeks.
Llano is located around 60 miles northwest of Austin.
