The Morgan County Sheriff's Department is partnering with U.S. Marshalls to find people like Bonnie Carr (above) who are in violation of the law for not registering as sex offenders.

U.S. Marshals are partnering with Indiana Sheriffs to locate 40 unregistered sex offenders in Central Indiana.

According to a Morgan County Sheriff’s Office Investigator Don Abel, the U.S. Marshal’s Office holds a blitz-like drive each year to track down sex offenders who are not on the list but should be.

“We have one person who we have a warrant out for, it’s been out for almost 3 years now and no one has been able to find this individual,” he says. “So, the marshals are going to do another drive, they do it once a year, and we’re going to see if we can find the individual.”

The Morgan County Sheriff’s Office has one outstanding warrant for a sex offender named Bonnie Carr who was convicted of sexual misconduct with a minor 3 years ago but has yet to register.
