Ice Cream Man Arrested On Molestation Charges

Neighbor says she caught incident on tape

An ice cream vendor was arrested on charges of committing lewd acts with a child.

A resident in the area told police she had videotaped an incident she allegedly witnessed between the vendor and a young boy.  She then gave the tape to police, the San Diego Union Tribune reported.

After a short investigation, Carlsbad Police caught  Luis Moedano Perez, 38, as he drove his white Dodge van with “Luis Ice Cream” painted on the side, near College Boulevard and Tamarack Avenue on Oct. 23.  He was questioned and then booked into the Vista Jail on suspicion of committing lewd acts with a child, a felony, and annoying a child.

Perez worked in Carlsbad and the south Oceanside area.  Anyone who may have seen unusual activity involving Perez, or his vehicle, has been asked to contact the Investigations Division of the Carlsbad Police Department
