SAN MARCOS, Texas (KXAN) - One person was arrested during a recent registered sex offender compliance check operation done by the San Marcos Police Department. Bryan Zekek Gil, 22, was arrested on July 2 and taken to Hays County Jail. He was charged with failure to comply with sex offender registration requirements, a third-degree felony.
"The San Marcos Police Department conducts these random compliance checks to ensure the information provided by convicted offenders is accurate," said Commander Penny Dunn of the SMPD Criminal Investigation Division.
San Marcos currently has 54 registered sex offenders living within the city limits. Forty-three of these were convicted of crimes against children.
Police records staff, community service officers, patrol officers, and criminal investigators participated in the operation. During these periodic unannounced operations, they coordinate the checks, complete documents, make personal visits to each of the registered sex offenders at their home or work address, and obtain a warrant for their arrest should the offender be found not to be in compliance.
Registered sex offenders are required to register a minimum of once a year to update their records and photographs. Offenders are also required to notify the police department within seven days of any changes in their home address, work location, or other physical status. Failure to comply with any of the requirements is a third-degree felony offense.
