Lubbock Police begin public effort to find absconded sex offenders
LUBBOCK, Texas (KCBD) - Lubbock Police are asking public’s help locating nine rogue sex offenders.
As part of the Lubbock Police Department’s improvements to their process for handling sex offender cases, they are issuing monthly lists of absconded registered sex offenders and asking the public to help find them.
As part of their punishment, registered sex offenders are required by law to disclose information to police including current residency, phone numbers, place of employment, and social media status. Failure to comply to these requirements is a felony charge.
Detective Trey Mayer with the Registered Sex Offenders Unit says looking into most cases of non-compliance by conducting a thorough investigation results in locating the individual. However, the individuals on the monthly lists are offenders who have had an investigation conducted with no result, and now have a warrant out for their arrest. Detective Mayer says the longest warrant on the current list is four years.
Ricky “Enrique” Flores is one of those nine fugitive sex offenders. Flores was charged with aggravated sexual assault of a child.
If you have any information on his whereabouts or the whereabouts of any of these individuals, please call the local Crime Line at 806-741-1000. You may be eligible for a reward, and you can remain anonymous.
