I always try to do a Google or in this case a Megan’s Law search for a picture of a suspect or at least more information, this one kind-of got my interest. The suspect arrested is named, Darrell Obbards, 29 of Twentynine Palms.
Deputies from the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department’s Morongo Basin Station, conducted a Compliance Operation of registered sex offenders living in the Morongo Basin. Deputies contacted numerous registrants at their residences to ensure they were in compliance with the terms and conditions of their registration requirements, per CA Penal Code 290.
During the Compliance Operation, one sexual assault investigation was conducted, resulting in Obbard’s arrest for an unrelated parole violation. Two investigations were initiated and are currently ongoing into two registrant’s failure to report their current addresses. One of those sex offenders is currently registered as a ‘transient’. ‘Transient’ sex offenders are required to register once per month with the Sheriff’s Department. All other registrants contacted during the operation were found to be in compliance.

Obbards appears to have been arrested for an unrelated parole violation. I was unable to find that Obbards was or is on the Chester List. Until he is proven as one in a court of law I would think linking him to a “Compliance Operation of registered sex offenders” is even chicken shit for us here at Cactus Thorns. You know that pesky “innocent until proven guilty” thing.
I can only assume that he pissed Rick off big time. Kinda like throwing a uncooperative prisoner into the general population with the announcement of, “Chester on the yard!” broadcast on the load speaker.
