A 48-year-old registered sex offender was arrested Jan. 8 after being found living behind Crittenden-Mt. Zion Elementary.
The Grant County Sheriff’s Office charged Ronald Gilbert for living within 1,000 feet of a school, which is a violation of his sex offender status.
After receiving a tip about Gilbert, the sheriff’s office checked at the Indian Hill Drive residence he was believed to be staying at.
They located Gilbert at the residence staying with family, including two nieces under 12 years old, according to police.
