Authorities: Approximately 97% of registrants compliant with state law

As reported in the Omaha World-Herald:

The U.S. Marshals Service partnered with several law enforcement agencies Wednesday to check that nearly 100 sex offenders living in Gage and Saline Counties were in compliance with state regulations. 

The operation led to the seizure of five guns from one offender and pending weapons charges. Three others were found to not be in full compliance with state law, said Tim Hanson, an investigator with the Gage County Sheriff’s Office. 

Supervisory Deputy U.S. Marshal Will Iverson said the compliance checks in the two counties looked into things such as whether sex offenders have registered with authorities and whether they’re living where they’re supposed to be.
