RENO — An unregistered violent sex offender surrendered himself to detectives with the Regional Sex Offender Notification Unit at 9 a.m. Wednesday in Reno.
Detectives sought Dennis D. Morehead, 35, from Muskegon, Mich. after it was discovered he had been in the area and unregistered with local enforcement.
Morehead is required to register in an area if he is present in that location for more than 48 hours, per Nevada Revised Statute. During an interview with Morehead, he admitted to living in Reno since November 2011.
Morehead is also wanted out of Michegan, where he is listed as non-compliant with sex offender registration requirements in that state.
Morehead was booked in the Washoe County Detention Facility without incident. His bail was set at $5,000.
Anyone with additional information on Morehead, or any other sex offender who may be out of compliance with state law, can contact the RSONU at 353-2244, or Secret Witness at 322-4900 or www.secretwitness.com.
