Miami County Kansas Sheriff's Office Wanted Wednesday

From the Bates County Sheriff's Office

We have had several sex offenders state that they were told they are no longer required to pay the $5.00 fee when they register. This is not correct. That part of the law did not change. 

The statutes states that the Chief Law Enforcement officer can charge $5.00 to the offender for changing their registration. 

When a sex offender registers in the month they are required to, that is considered a change to their registration per MSHP. 

All sex offenders are required to pay the $5.00 fee when they register in Bates County.

A bit of wintry weather Thursday

It’s going to feel like we went from Fall to Winter over the next couple of days. Today the sun will shine a bit, but temperatures will remain on the cool side across Kansas and Missouri as north winds prevail. Thursday will see precipitation develop across the region, possibly as early as the morning hours, though more likely during Thursday afternoon. 

Temperature profiles indicate that precipitation during the daylight hours will likely be rain, with a bit of snow mixed in; but Thursday evening temperatures will drop, and what rain is out there will change over to snow. 

Currently, only light accumulations, ranging from a trace to around 1 inch, of snow are expected during the late afternoon and overnight hours of Thursday into Friday morning. Otherwise, expect temperatures to remain well below normal through the weekend.
