•The Morrow County Sheriff’s Office police arrested a 64-year-old Boardman man on multiple counts of first-degree sexual abuse.

Morrow County District Attorney Justin Nelson said the sheriff’s office was working on the case for some time and that culminated Thursday with the questioning and subsequent arrest of Daniel Cobarrubia Guardado.

Nelson said deputy district attorney Richard Tovey filed paperwork with the court Friday morning alleging Cobarrubia Guardado committed four counts of first-degree sexual abuse against a child younger than 14. Nelson said the crimes took place from June 2017 though April 2019.

He also said more charges could be coming after a grand jury reviews the case. For now, Cobarrubia Guardado remains in the Umatilla County Jail, Pendleton.
