Miguel Benavides, a registered sex offender in Odessa, was arrested Wednesday for failure to comply with registration requirements, a third degree felony in Texas.
According to Ector County court documents and a sworn affidavit obtained by NewsWest 9, Benavides failed to report his most recent home addresses."People need to know where sex offenders are residing," Odessa Police Spokesman, Cpl. Steve LeSueur, said. "Unfortunately there's several that aren't living where they say they're living. We have had some sex offenders that have reported in the past that they reside at Walmart or Love's Truck Stop."
Anyone with information can reach Odessa Crime Stoppers at 432-333-TIPS. Callers can choose to remain anonymous.
