Two Arrested on Halloween for Sex Offender Non-compliance
On Tuesday, the Pettis County Sheriff’s Office and Sedalia Police Department conducted their third joint operation on sex offender compliance checks for Halloween restrictions.
Together, every sex offender who was required to comply with Halloween restrictions was checked.
Prior to this operation, letters were mailed to those who fall within the restrictions, outlining expectations.
The two law enforcement agencies made contact at 96 residences. Out of those 96, eight of them were non-compliant. Six will have warrant applications submitted to Prosecutor Phillip Sawyer, and two were arrested on scene.
Lacey Rockhold and Timothy Holland were both arrested for non-compliance. Sheriff Brad Anders will advise of the other six when warrants are handed down.
Holland was 41 in 2009 when he was convicted of first-degree child molestation involving an eight-year-old, according to the Missouri State Highway Patrol sex offender registry list.
29-year-old Lacey Victoria Dia Rockhold, of the 1000 block of Royal Blvd., had a 2012 conviction of felony kidnapping/facilitating a felony/causing injury and terrorizing, out of Henry County.
“I am very thankful for the cooperation with the Sedalia Police Department, and proud of both their offices and my deputies for successfully completing this operation. We will continue this moving forward,” Anders said in a Facebook post.
