170 Sex Offenders in Albemarle Region Get Surprise Visits
"170" and "Sex Offenders" on Front Page Makes the Reality Clear...and these are only the ones who have been caught and convicted!
Kudos to federal, state, and local law enforcement officers for joining forces to take sex offenders to task over registering their addresses. Many of these offenders either fail to register or register a family member's address as their own in order to hide their true whereabouts, while they might actually live within yards of a childcare facility or school. According to The Daily Advance, "Operation Paladin" started on Monday and will continue through Friday, September 16. So far, three offenders in Pasquotank and one offender in Perquimans have been arrested for failure to register. There are more who have not been located.
