A Donaldsonville man wanted for failure to register as a sex offender in Ascension Parish was arrested Tuesday in Harvey, said Lt. Col. Bobby Webre, of the Ascension Parish Sheriff’s Office.
Kevin Jones, 54, of 800 Catalpa St., failed to register as a sex offender, Webre said.
Ascension Parish sheriff’s deputies received a Crime Stoppers tip Monday about Jones being in Jefferson Parish.
A joint investigation with the Ascension Parish Sheriff’s Office and the U.S. Marshals Service led investigators to a residence in Marrero on Tuesday morning and from there to a cellular store in Harvey, where Jones was found and arrested, Webre said in a news release.
Jones was booked in Jefferson Parish Jail as a fugitive and will be taken to the Ascension Parish Prison, the Sheriff’s Office report said.
