ATHENS, Ga. (AP) -- Authorities in Clarke County recently completed their first-ever countywide sweep to make sure registered sex offenders are complying with state law.
The Athens Banner-Herald reports that the Clarke County Sheriff's Office visited more than 100 homes during the compliance check on May 16 and 17.
Capt. Jimps Cole coordinated the operation, which included help from Georgia Bureau of Investigation agents and state probation officers.
He says two people were arrested for living where they shouldn't, and deputies took out warrants on two they couldn't find.
State law says sex offenders must register their addresses with the local sheriff's office when on probation or upon release from jail.
They must notify authorities when they move.
Nearly all of the county's 141 registered offenders were living where they were supposed to.
