GP Police Collared Convicted Sex Offender after Williams Highway Plaza Call

Grants Pass Police arrested an out-of-compliance sex offender after responding to a weekend trespassing complaint at the Williams Highway Plaza.

The Police Department reports officers were alerted on Saturday night to a male subject who had returned to Safeway after he had been trespassed earlier in the day. He had been kicked out of the store and told not to return, but he did anyway.

Police said they contacted the 31-year-old man in front of the Magic Man store on Williams Highway a short time later and discovered that he was wanted for being out-of-compliance with his sex offender registration. He advised officers that he was told by his attorney that he no longer had to register and he was a "free man."

Court records disagreed with the man's assertion, so he was placed into custody.

The suspect was lodged at the Josephine County Jail for Failure to Register as a Sex Offender. He was being held without bail.
