WCSO: 30 arrested in sex offender, outstanding warrants sweep
A team of deputies from the Washington County Sheriff's Office made 30 arrests during a six-day "enforcement mission" last week, the Sheriff's Office announced Monday, Sept. 11.
The Criminal Apprehension Team's stated mission focus was on checking whether area residents on the sex offender registry were in compliance, as well as enforcing outstanding arrest warrants. Deputies conducted 216 home visits and warrant and compliance checks in Washington County between Sunday, Sept. 3, and Friday, Sept. 8, according to the Sheriff's Office.
Three Portland residents, two Beaverton residents, two Tigard residents and one Gresham resident — all men, ranging in age from 20 to 65 — were arrested or cited as sex offenders not in compliance with the terms of their registration requirements, the Sheriff's Office said.
Twenty-two others were arrested for outstanding warrants.
The Sheriff's Office partnered with the Hillsboro Police Department and the U.S. Marshals Service to carry out the enforcement mission.
