Sex offender wanted for failure to register

A sex offender with a history of not registering with authorities is wanted on a felony warrant again.

 Eric Paul Alger, 24, was convicted of indecent liberties in Spokane County in 2005.

Crime Stoppers is offering a reward for tips that lead to his arrest after he failed to register as required.

He has at least three past convictions for failing to register, including convictions in 2009 and 2010 when he was sent to prison.

Alger was named a Crime Stoppers fugitive for failing to register as a sex offender within two months of being released on April 19, 2010. He was sentenced in August 2010 to 20 months in prison.

A new, $25,000 warrant was issued July 31 after Alger again failed to register. He's required to check in with authorities weekly because he is a transient.

Anyone with information on his current location is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS, or submit tips online here. Tipsters do not have to give their name to collect a reward but should leave a code name or number.

Reward targets fugitive sex offender

A sex offender wanted since January for failing to register with authorities is being sought by Crime Stoppers.

A reward is available for information that leads to the arrest of Jack Edward Johannbroer, 47, who was convicted of first-degree child molestation in 1993 in Spokane County.

Johannbroer is a level 1 sex offender, which is the classification considered least likely to reoffend. A $15,000 warrant was issued Jan. 30 in Spokane County Superior Court for failing to register as a sex offender.

He's been wanted for the crime before. In 2009, “Washington's Most Wanted” featured him and said he'd served more than four years in prison for molesting two girls in Spokane County, for which he was convicted of child molestation.

“Then in 2007, while living in Kennewick, a jury convicted him of beating his girlfriend and choking her until she passed out,” the TV show reported. “He only got probation for that crime.”

Anyone with information on Johannbroer's current location is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS, or submit tips online here.

Tipsers do not have to give their name to collect a reward but should leave a code name or number.

Cash targets unregistered sex offenders

Two Spokane sex offenders with lengthy criminal histories are wanted by Crime Stoppers for failing to register.

Jeremiah Kevin Johnson, 33, was convicted of first-degree child molestation in 1990 and 2006.

He's already failed to register as a sex offender at least once - he was sentenced to 90 days in jail and three years probation in 2009.

Johnson (pictured left) also has convictions for assault and unlawfully possessing guns. He last gave an address in the 0 block of East Courtland Avenue in Spokane.

Joining Johnson on the Crime Stoppers fugitive list is Lamonte William Lindsay, 46, (pictured right) who has more than 40 criminal convictions as an adult, including at least eight for assault.

Lindsay was convicted of third-degree rape in 1989. He has previously failed to register as a sex offender. He last gave an address in the 300 block of W. 2nd Ave., but the online sex offender registry says he currently is a transient who's required to check in with authorities every week.

He's been wanted since May 22 on a $15,000 warrant.

Crime Stoppers is offering a reward for tips that lead to their arrests. Anyone with information either man's location is asked to call 1-800-222-TIPS or submit tips online.

Cops: Sex offender tried to rape hooker

A sex offender jailed in California has been charged with trying to rape a Spokane prostitute at knifepoint.

Robert James Barbee, 38, also faces a federal charge of failing to register as a sex offender after investigators say he moved to the area from California without notifying authorities.

He was arrested in Oct. 17 after a woman recognized him as the man who tried to rape her Sept. 25 after she agreed to perform oral sex for $40, according to the Spokane Police Department.

The woman told police was working the corner of East Sprague Avenue and North Magnolia Street when she went with the man to an abandoned house and was attacked. The woman said she fought off the attack and was assisted by patrons at the Rainbow Room, a topless bar.

Police caught up with Barbee Oct. 17 after the woman called 911 and said her attacker approached her friend that day while they were working as prostitutes near Sprague and North Crestline Street. Officers found Barbee near East Second Avenue and South Perry Street, and he told them he'd been attacked by a man who accused him of raping a woman, according to court documents.

Barbee was arrested on a warrant out of California for failing to follow parole conditions for a theft/embezzlement against the elderly conviction. He told police he'd been in Spokane for about five weeks and was staying at the House of Charity.

A federal complaint filed Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Spokane alleges he failed to register as a sex offender here. He's required to do so because of a 1994 conviction for lewd and lascivious conduct with a 13-year-old child. Barbee last registered as a transient in San Joaquin County, Calif.

Spokane police Detective Brian Hamond says Barbee denied any knowledge of the incident during a phone interview in prison in Elk Grove, Calif. on Dec. 19. Barbee also denied carrying a knife, according to documents prepared by Hamond.

Spokane County prosecutors charged Barbee Dec. 20 with attempted first-degree rape and second-degree assault. He has not yet arrived in Spokane to face charges.

Reward for tips on fugitive sex offender

A sex offender already on probation for failing to register is wanted by authorities for failing to check in weekly as required.

 James Richard Gilmore, 22, was convicted of indecent liberties in Spokane County in 2005.

He was sentenced in March to a year of probation and nine days in jail with credit for nine served for failing to register as a sex offender, but a $15,000 arrest warrant was issued July 28, again for failure to register.

Gilmore is a transient, which means he's required to check in with authorities every week. He's a level 1 sex offender, the classification considered least likely to reoffend.

Crime Stoppers offered a reward Thursday for tips that lead to his arrest.

Gilmore, 5-foot-7 and 160 pounds last gave a home address in the 1100 block of Tacoma Avenue South in Tacoma, according to Crime Stoppers.

Anyone with information on his current location is asked to call 1-800-222-TIPS or submit tips online.

Tips sought on unregistered sex offender

A $25,000 warrant for failing to register as a sex offender was issued April 12.
