“Primarily in the city of Lancaster,” said Sergeant Brian Hudson of the Sheriff’s Department’s Special Victims Bureau. “It’s part of an ongoing joint effort between the Sheriff’s Department and state parole officers to ensure that registered sex offenders residing in the Antelope Valley are living within the terms of their parole conditions.”
Twelve locations were visited during the operation, which began at 7 a.m., Friday, April 25.
Seven registered sex offenders were found to be in various violations of their parole and were arrested, Hudson stated.
One registered sex offender was arrested for failing to register with the Sheriff’s Department within the required time period after he moved to a residence in the Antelope Valley.
Names and addresses for those arrested were not immediately available Friday afternoon.
The parole compliance operation was conducted by detectives from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Special Victims Bureau, California State Parole Officers from the Department of Corrections and personnel from the U.S. Marshals Service.
