BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA (WFTV) – Brevard County deputies are searching for a convicted sex offender who they said is on the run after he resisted arrest.
Cocoa resident Steve Blankenship, 36, ran into nearby woods after he was discovered at a home on Desert Sands Avenue on Wednesday around 9 a.m., deputies said.
According to a report, Blankenship was convicted of a sexual offense in 2005 in West Virginia and was not permitted at the home due to a domestic violence arrest on June 2.
Deputies said Blankenship may have removed his electronic monitoring device from a previous arrest for failing to register.
