A convicted sex offender from Texas was arrested last week in Dolores after failing to notify officials of his new address.
During a cooperative investigation with La Plata County authorities, a Montezuma County sheriff’s deputy located Christopher Prewitt, 32, last week. Prewitt reportedly left his last known address in Durango and then failed to register with local authorities.
According to law enforcement reports, an arrest warrant was issued, and Prewitt was apprehended on May 22. The convicted sex offender was reportedly residing at the Rio Grand Hotel and working at the Riverfront Bar and Grill in Dolores.
According to media reports, Prewitt was convicted on two charges of sexual assault on a child in Texas. The 2010 convictions reportedly involved a 15-year-old.
