A 36-year-old Sulphur man has been charged with molestation of a juvenile and failure to register as a sex offender.
Danny Dempsey Myers was arrested by the Sulphur Police Department Tuesday afternoon.
“During the investigation it was learned that Myers was registered in Calcasieu Parish but did not register with Sulphur after moving into the city,” said spokesman Mel Estess.
According to American Press archives, Myers was indicted in December 1998 on three counts of indecent behavior with a juvenile and one count of aggravated crime against nature. Myers, who was 22 at the time, and another man were accused of having sexual contact with a 13-year-old juvenile on Aug. 22.
Myers, 409 Cypress St., Apt. A, was also charged with drug possession and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Bond has been set at $305,000.
City police are asking for the public’s help in identifying the suspect from multiple armed robberies.
Deputy Chief Mark Kraus said the most-recent incident occurred June 15 at a business at 2202 Common St.
Kraus said the suspect has been described as a black male, 6-foot-1 to 6-3, 170-180 pounds with a slim-to-medium build. He was wearing a blue hoodie, red, white and blue T-shirt, denim shorts and black-trimmed tennis shoes. He had a blue homemade mask covering his face.
“The suspect was armed with an old-model black revolver with a long barrel,” Kraus said.
The man is also wanted in connection with the June 8 armed robbery of the Shop Rite store on Lake Street.
Following the June 8 incident, Kraus said the suspect was wearing a long sleeve red, white and blue hoodie, light denim shorts and white tennis shoes. He had black gloves and was carrying an old long-barreled revolver in his right hand.
