Around 4 p.m., U.S. Marshals in California took 62-year-old Ronnie Foreman into custody without incident after law enforcement received information that he was staying in a hotel in Sacramento, according to Jan Clark with the Portsmouth Police Department.
Clark said a Portsmouth family let Foreman of the 700 block of Round Bay Road in Norfolk care for their three young girls on several occasions in February and March 2013.
