SCRANTON, LACKAWANNA COUNTY (WBRE/WYOU) — The U.S. Marshals announced the results of an operation to verify the registered addresses of convicted sex offenders living in and around Scranton.
“Operation Dunder Mifflin”, coordinated with the Scranton Police Department and Pennsylvania State Police Megan’s Law Section, verified the addresses of 219 registered sex offenders, according to U.S. Marshals.
They say 13 offenders were in violation of sex offender registration laws, nine were arrested and four (pictured) are still sought for the violations.
