A Pike County man who is a registered sex offender was taken into custody yesterday afternoon.
Pike County Sheriff’s Deputies executed a court-authorized search warrant at a residence in the 500 block of East Bridge Street in Nebo. 63-year-old Mark T. Westemeyer of Nebo was arrested on a charge of failure to register as a sex offender.
Pike County Sheriff David Greenwood says Westemeyer was also in violation of possessing a social media account without the disclosure of the account on his registration. Westemeyer remains lodged in the Pike County Jail. Greenwood says additional charges are pending.
