Level 2 Sex Offender moving onto Eklund Avenue
The Hoquiam Police Department reports that a Level 2 Registered Sex Offender has told them that he will be moving into the 200 block of Eklund Avenue.
42 year old Anthony D. Jenkins was convicted in 1990 of Rape of a Child 3rd Degree in Snohomish County.
Detective Sergeant Krohn told KXRO that Jenkins reported to the police that he was moving to the address, and at this time is not wanted by police for any crime. Registered Sex Offenders are required to register with the Sheriff’s Office if they move.
Jenkins has been previously registered at addresses on both Aberdeen Avenue in Hoquiam and 1st Street in Aberdeen.
The Hoquiam Police Department has no authority to direct where a sex or kidnapping offender may or may not live unless court ordered restrictions exist.
Sex and kidnapping offenders have always lived in our communities; but it wasn’t until passage of the Community Protection Act of 1990 that law enforcement even knew where offenders were living.
There are over 19000 sex or kidnapping offenders who have registered since 1990 in Washington. Approximately 400 of these are registered to Grays Harbor County, and approximately 48 are registered within Hoquiam.
