PORTLAND, Maine — A two-day sweep by federal and local police in two Maine counties is confirming that the majority of sex offenders are complying with state registry requirements.

The U.S. Marshals Service joined local and county officers in the sex offender enforcement operation Monday and Tuesday.

Officials say officers physically verified 54 registered sex offenders’ addresses in Sagadahoc County on Monday and another 74 addresses on Tuesday in Lincoln County.

Officials say two offenders were arrested for failure to update their addresses in the state sex offender registry. Two others received summonses for failing to properly comply with the reporting requirements.
