Sex Offender Sweep: What did investigators find?


19 Action News now has the results of the sex offender sweep done by Cuyahoga County Sheriff's Deputies and Cleveland Police.

Teams of officers hit the streets last Wednesday night, checking up on 134 sex offenders. 19 Action News has learned that 94 sex offenders were found to be living at their registered addresses. At 19 addresses, there was no response. At 25 others, investigators found reason to open new investigations. That is, sex offenders who should have been at those addresses were not. Investigators are now following up to find out where they are really staying.

Last week, Reporter Ed Gallek revealed Cuyahoga County Sheriff's Deputies already had 125 sex offenders who were wanted for not staying where they said they were. Those convicts can be hit with felony charges for not updating their addresses with the Sheriff.
