LOCATION: Beatrice, Nebraska
OFFENSE: Sex Offender Registration Violation / Arrest
CASE #: 2020-4258
Investigators from the Gage County Sheriff’s Office concluded a several month investigation of a sex offender registration violation with issuance of an arrest warrant for 30-year-old Cody Haynes of Beatrice. Haynes voluntarily surrendered himself for arrest at the Gage County Sheriff’s Office on Sunday, January 31, 2021 at approximately 7:06 p.m. after his warrant was posted on the Gage County Sheriff’s Office website.
Residents in Beatrice had called the Gage County Sheriff’s Office several months ago to report Haynes was not living at his registered address. Investigators from the sheriff’s office contacted the Sex Offender Tracking Team from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children and were provided with information that corroborated these reports.
Over the course of the last few months, additional information the investigators garnered provided additional probable cause and resulted in the issuance of an arrest warrant for Cody Haynes on 01-29-2021.
Persons subject to the Nebraska Sex Offender Registry are provided a letter detailing their reporting requirements. Completion of the reporting form takes 5-10 minutes, or less, and there is no charge associated with providing the information.
