Home addresses of convicted sex offenders double-checked

A sweep to find 110 registered sex offenders living in and around Williamsport has turned up three convicted sex offenders who remain under investigation for possible violations of Megan’s Law.

U.S. Marshals Service recently joined with area police agencies to check home addresses of convicted sex offenders, according to U.S. Marshal Martin J. Pane.

“These collaborative efforts between U.S. Marshals and state and local police agencies to address the problem of unregistered sex offenders have been on-going for several years and will continue into the future,” Pane said. “Offenders should know if they violate Megan’s Law, they will be discovered and prosecuted.”

No names were provided by Pane. State police in the Megan’s Law section and fugitive unit joined Pennsylvania College of Technology police, South Williamsport police and deputies and sheriffs in Lycoming and Union counties in the sweep, Pane said.
