Klamath County Sex Offender Compliance Sweep Nets 7 Arrests; Twenty-Seven Others Wanted
A compliance sweep of Klamath County registered sex offenders by Oregon State Police (OSP) detectives was completed Wednesday leading to the arrest of seven out-of-compliance offenders and the identification of 27 sex offenders now wanted on outstanding arrest warrants. Photographs of twenty-five of the 27 wanted registered sex offenders are forwarded with this release to help locate them.
According to OSP Detective Teresa Bowersox, the sweep actually began last week when detectives initiated an extensive investigation into the whereabouts of 69 registered sex offenders determined to be out-of-compliance with mandatory state registration requirements. During that investigation 22 offenders were located in other States around the country. Five offenders were found to be currently incarcerated for an array of charges including one subject for Homicide in Montana. One offender was found to be deceased.
On January 21, 2009, eight OSP detectives targeted the remaining 41 out-of-compliance sex offenders in Klamath County where there are currently a total of 354 registered sex offenders, including four who are registered predatory sex offenders. Detectives checked on those predatory sex offenders to confirm the accuracy of their actual addresses.
Five offenders were located and cited for Failure to Register as a Sex Offender. Two offenders were arrested and lodged in the Klamath County Jail. Requests were forwarded to the Klamath County District Attorney’s Office for arrest warrant consideration on 18 other offenders. Six offenders were found to be already in custody on a variety of criminal charges. In total, twenty-five cases were made on the 41 targeted offenders and the investigations involving the remaining offenders are ongoing.
The following five offenders were cited to appear in Klamath County Circuit Court for Failure to Register as a Sex Offender:
MADDEN, SAMUEL PHILLIP, age 21, from Klamath Falls.
