On 05/15/10 the Ventura County Sheriff’s Department, members of the High Tech Task Force, along with agents from State Parole conducted a sex registrant 290 PC compliance sweep involving 62 registered sex offenders in the city of Camarillo. Section 290 of the California Penal Code requires persons convicted of specified Sexual Assault cases to register with the agency where they reside. The Ventura County Sheriff’s Department will be conducting these sweeps randomly throughout the county.

Among other reasons, these checks are conducted to verify that the locations where sex registrants state they reside are accurate. Additionally, probation and/or parole searches are also conducted when appropriate. As a result of the sweep, one parolee, William Inscoe, was arrested for an unrelated violation of his parole terms. Inscoe was booked into the Pre-Trial Detention Facility. A second subject was found to be in violation of the registration process. An investigation into that violation(s) is continuing. With the exception of the potential registration and parole violation, no other significant events occurred.
