TRUMBULL COUNTY, Ohio (WKBN) – Two registered sex offenders were arrested as a result of a sex offender sweep in Trumbull County.
Sean Garner and Kenneth Miller were taken to the Trumbull County Jail on failure to provide a change of address charge.
Forty-five officers conducted a sweep of Trumbull County to make sure 224 sex offenders living in the county were living at their registered addresses.
Registered sex offenders are required by law to provide their address to the county sheriff’s office in their county.
Sheriff Paul Monroe said this is just another step his office is taking to protect Trumbull County’s citizens.
“The only thing worse than having a sexual offender live next to you is having one live next to you that you don’t know about.”
On Wednesday, Monroe said most of the offenders they had checked on were in compliance.
If anyone suspects a registered offender is in violation of the law, Monroe said to give their office a call at 330-675-2440. Anonymous tips can be sent in via the Trumbull County Sheriff’s website.
