OAK PARK (WWJ) – Twenty sex offenders were apprehended on outstanding felony warrants following a sweep in Macomb and Oakland counties last week.

Investigators had previously checked the residences of 414 registered sex offenders in both counties to verify the offenders were living at their reported addresses. Registered sex offenders are required to report a change of address within three business days when they move or vacate a residence. Offenders who fail to report an address change can face a four-year felony conviction.
