Pedophile on the Run Busted by Store Clerk With Amazing Intuition

A Houston fitness instructor wanted for repeatedly sexually assaulting a 13-year-old girl was recently busted in Thailand, thanks to a quick-thinking cashier. Forrest Wayne, 44, was shopping in a health food store a long way from home when the clerk noticed something was "off" about him. Suspicious of the man, the clerk searched his name on the Internet after he gave his information and, lo and behold, turned out that the clerk's instinct was right. Wayne was wanted in the United States for an alleged illicit relationship he carried out with a young girl he met at the gym he worked at. Busted.

After realizing who Wayne was, the clerk contacted authorities, and he was arrested over the weekend. He'll be extradited back to Houston to face charges at some point hopefully in the very near future.

The odds of Wayne ever being caught were fairly slim. I mean, he'd gotten out of the country. In fact, if he was out shopping at a health food store, I'm betting he thought he was home free. Thank goodness the store clerk followed their intuition. This man could have actually gotten away with this alleged crime. Details are scant on what exactly Wayne was doing that seemed suspicious, but sometimes something just doesn't feel right, you know? So often we shrug these circumstances off because they don't directly affect us, but we shouldn't. This dirtbag could have gone a free man for sexually assaulting a young girl.

Now that he's been caught, things aren't looking good for Wayne. The girl he was assaulting is reportedly working with police and has given details on everything that went on. If I were a betting woman, I'd say he's going to be locked up for a long, long time.

And it's all thanks to a cashier who didn't like the looks of things. Imagine they never bothered to search his name?

Have you ever trusted your gut when something seemed off?

Ironic a pedophile was captured in Thailand, a place notorious for its underage prostitution.

Dude, how skeevy do you have to be set off alarms in THAILAND? I mean, isn't that basically the world capitol for sex trade, especially trade of young children? I don't say this to try and slam Thailand, I'm just saying this guy had to be super skeevy...

My mom and I were sitting next to a man at my brothers preschool waiting for the kids to come out. We knew he had a daughter in the class, but there was something about him that made us both feel a little weird.

a year later he was found guilty as the Abbotsford killer. He had raped and murdered one girl and brutally beat another, leaving her for dead. He harassed the community and taunted the police for months until he was finally caught.

I agree with the above. Especially Lauren. I've def always listened to my gut, and it has def helped me out. Glad the clerk listened to their gut. If I could say one thing to this douche it'd be "Don't drop the soap dude!" lmao Or can you say #SomebodiesBitch

Trust your gut, always. And read "The Gift of Fear" by Gavin DeBecker. It talks about how important it is to trust your instincts and senses.

Well good job to the guy that called the police, now the guy will go to jail..for a little while. then he will just be out on the streets doing it again. Hooray for our justice system!
