An Omaha man who fled to Nicaragua while awaiting trial on several charges, including possession of child pornography, is in custody in Douglas County.
Adam Hawhee, 29, was booked into the Douglas County Jail on Tuesday morning. He faces multiple charges, including two counts of criminal child enticement, 26 counts of possession of child pornography and failure to appear in court.
Hawhee was deported to Miami, Florida, on May 7 and taken into custody on his outstanding warrants. He was returned to Nebraska following the extradition process in Florida, the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office said in a press release.
Hawhee had been listed at the top of Douglas County’s most-wanted list. He was initially arrested July 20, 2020, after he was accused of trying to coax a boy to approach his vehicle near Cottonwood Elementary School. The boy told police that he ran home after the man exposed his genitals.
The boy’s father followed the vehicle, and investigators went to Hawhee’s home and arrested him.
