City’s new policy flushes out unregistered sexual predator


The Perry City Council’s recent decision to post signs in front of the homes of registered sexual predators had an unintended consequence, flushing out an offender who had not registered his most current address with authorities.

During Tuesday night’s regular city meeting, City Manager Bob Brown related that one day after the sign was posted at an address on Campbell Street, residents of that address began calling council members with complaints.

“The homeowner came to the Perry Police Department (PPD) and gave a sworn statement that the registered predator (Charles Leon Tinsley) did not reside at the residence, but used it for a mail drop,” Brown said.
