Jim Wells County deputies arrested a 29-year-old registered sex offender on Thursday at approximately 1 p.m. on the 500 block of County Road 137.

Alice Police Officer Orlando Jasso notified deputies of Jacob Johnson's whereabouts and possible location after Johnson failed to register.

Jasso stated he was updating sex offender records when he was notified Johnson no longer was employed at a business on file. Johnson failed to inform Jasso about the termination as per conditions.

Johnson was involved in a disturbance at his place of employment and was then terminated.

A warrant was issued for Johnson.

Johnson was arrested and transported to the JWC jail. As of Thursday afternoon he remains in county jail with no bond.
