ORANGEVALE (CBS13) — There’s a tight-knit community in Orangevale. Everyone keeps a close eye on who joins their community and some aren’t welcome.
CBS13 discovered three sex offenders living at the same house on Drywood Way. Not everyone knew about their neighbors and finding the information wasn’t easy.READ MORE: 5-Year-Old Boy With Cystic Fibrosis Recovers From COVID-19
When we initially ran the address on Megan’s Law, a message popped up showing no sex offenders listed at that address.
“I don’t want these people living across from me,” said a neighbor named Ginny.
“You don’t have a choice. They have a legal right to live there,” said another neighbor, Sherri Harlow.
What we discovered caused quite a bit of conversation at the Woodmore Oaks online neighborhood watch meeting Thursday night. But it wasn’t just the Orangevale address that didn’t check out.READ MORE: Gov. Newsom, Lawmakers Reach Deal To Get California Children Back In Classrooms
CBS13 discovered nearly a dozen more convicted sex offenders who don’t show up when you run a search on their addresses on the Megan’s Law website.
We alerted the Attorney General’s office which asked to see our findings. A spokesperson responded saying, “A number of these appear to be working through the address search function on our end. We’ll have our technical team take a look though and follow up if we need any additional info.”
