OTTUMWA, Iowa (KYOU) - Wapello County Sheriff Don Phillips says since February his office has implemented a sex offender registry compliance check program.

There are currently approximately 150 sex offenders registered as living in Wapello County.

The sheriff says every other month, the deputies split up the total number and travel to each offender’s address. The deputies verify the address is correct and verify all

other relevant information provided by them is accurate and acceptable. During the course of this new program the whereabouts of several offenders have been

unknown and warrants have been issued.

Due to this new program four individuals appeared on the ‘Most Wanted’ list. Those four individuals have since been arrested and removed off

the list.

But there is one individual on the "Most Wanted’ list that has warrants from the county.
