There's a new addition to the Edward/Jacob debate: Robert Gray.
​Halloween's over, but get out your garlic cloves and sharpen your wooden stakes -- the Valley of the Sun has a vampire problem.

For the third time in a month, a Valley resident who claims to be a vampire has been arrested -- this one happens to be a sex offender, who drives a hearse, sleeps in a coffin, and has fangs.

Read all about the first two blood-slurpers here.

The latest Valley lunatic to claim he's a vamp is Robert Gray, a Mesa guy arrested last week by the U.S. Marshal's Service.

The marshals had been looking for Gray, who sports dental implants that make his teeth look like fangs, for several months before his arrest on Thursday.

Gray's criminal past includes a conviction of molesting a young girl. He had failed to register as a sex offender, which is the reason he was sought by the marshals.

In honor of Halloween, the Marshals started Operation Safe Treat, where they rounded up sex offenders who failed to register.

Gray was one of 30 sex offenders taken into custody during the roundup.

As he was taken into custody, Gray was said to have hissed at marshals. He was arrested for violating his probation by failing to register as a sex offender.
