Department Verify Addresses
of Registered Sex Offenders Living in Scranton Area
Scranton, PA – Today, United States Marshal Martin J. Pane announced the results of Operation Dunder Mifflin – an effort to verify the registered addresses of convicted sex offenders.
Between August 2nd and September 17th, the U.S. Marshals Service (USMS) coordinated with the Scranton Police Department – supported by the Pennsylvania State Police (PSP) Megan’s Law Section – to verify the registered home addresses of 219 registered sex offenders living in and around Scranton.
Thirteen of these offenders were found to be in violation of sex offender registration laws – nine were arrested and four are sought for the violations. Those arrested include:
United States Marshal Pane stated, “The Adam Walsh Child Protection and Safety Act of 2006 designated the USMS as the federal agency responsible for helping local and state authorities locate and arrest convicted sex offenders who fail to comply with their Megan’s Law requirements. It’s a mission that receives top priority and constant attention within our agency.”
And Scranton Chief of Police Leonard A. Namiotka
added, “This joint operation was successful in ensuring those required
to register remain compliant and those who are in violation are brought
before the court to answer for their non-compliance. The cooperation
between the Scranton Police Department and our law enforcement partners
is paramount in making our community safe for all citizens.”
Anyone with information about these, or
other fugitives, is asked to contact the U.S. Marshals at
