New Developments In Sex Offender Round-Up

Two sex offenders remained behind bars Friday evening, after Lubbock Police arrested seven sex offenders in a raid Thursday night. 

It's an update to a NewsChannel 11 exclusive we first brought you Thursday night on the news at 10 p.m. That's when police were actively removing offenders from local neighborhoods.  Some of the offenders were arrested on outstanding warrants and made arrangements to take care of those, but others were taken in for more serious charges. They remain in jail.

32-year-old Pedro Nerios is charged with sexual assault and marijuana possession.  Police took Nerios into custody around 7:30 p.m. Thursday, from the Foxhole Apartments in the 5400 Block of 40th Street.

Other offenders were picked up for lesser offenses.

"Such as traffic violations, things of that nature. We picked up one for failure to comply. One had possession of marijuana charges on him," LPD Sgt. Jeff Davis said. 

Police picked up 31-year-old Felipe Rodriguez on an LPD warrant for a health code violation, but a neighbor also had concerns.

"She had just moved into the neighborhood and wasn't aware the next door neighbor was a registered sex offender. He had approached her children, offered them free pizza," Davis said. 

Police also tell us that Rodriguez has a My Space page that should be taken down, though he is not facing charges for that right now.

Police also arrested 25-year-old Joshua Joseph Rodriguez, on a warrant for a sex offender parole violation out of Michigan, but they had to release him shortly after the arrest, when authorities there told police they would not extradite him.

We wanted to know why authorities in Michigan wouldn't take Joshua Rodriguez back. We learned his warrant is out of Lenawee County, and that it's a tri-county warrant, meaning they would only extradite him out of Michigan, Indiana, and Ohio.

We're told authorities in Lenawee County are looking into the matter though, so things could change. Of course we'll keep folks up to date.
