The Ralls County Sheriff’s Office reported several sex offenders were found non-compliant Tuesday during a sweep.

In a news release, the sheriff’s office stated deputies checked on 25 registered sex offenders. They stated 14 were found to be non-compliant.

The sheriff’s office reported six of those 14 were arrested on charges ranging from failing to register as a sex offender to possession of methamphetamine.

Missouri state law requires that sex offenders not participate in Halloween-related activities. They must also leave exterior lighting off, remain in their home between 5 p.m. and 10:30 p.m. and post a sign saying “No candy or treats at this residence.”

The sheriff’s office stated more charges against non-compliant sex offenders were under review by the county prosecutor.

The names of those arrested were not released by the Ralls County Sheriff’s Office.
