Police: Sex offender facing felony charge after not registering new Panhandle address
SIDNEY, Neb. -- The Sidney Police Department has arrested a sex offender for allegedly not registering his new address after living there for two months.
On Friday around 4:00 p.m., officers were dispatched to a Sidney residence regarding a disturbance with a man reportedly yelling at a woman for at least 10 minutes.
SPD contacted the man who lived at the residence, and he explained that he and his girlfriend got into a loud argument.
Police stated that the man refused to provide proper identification for several minutes until he handed the officer his license. Authorities finally were able to identify him as 22-year-old Jeramiah Thompson.
Police said they ran his information through the communications center when it was discovered that Thompson was a registered sex offender. Dispatchers then advised police that Thompson had not registered his new address within the three-day period.
SPD said Thompson admitted he was a registered sex offender and that he did not register his new address, and he stated that he had been living there for two months.
Thompson told police he was arrested in Colorado in 2017 for recording a sexual act on the social media app, Snapchat.
Authorities reported arresting Thompson for failure to update his new address as required for the sex offender registry.
