Synopsis: On 02/02/2013 at 1430 hours Mendocino County Sheriff's Sergeant Derek Scott conducted an investigation into the sex offender registration status of Benjamin Delgado.

Sergeant Scott oversees the SAFE (Sexual Assault Felony Enforcement) Program for the Sheriff's Office and noticed that Delgado was not living where he stated on his sex offender registration paperwork.

Sergeant Scott located Delgado and developed probable cause to show Delgado failed to notify the Sheriff's Office of the address of his new residence, as required by law.

Delgado was arrested for failure to register and for violation of probation. Delgado was booked into the Mendocino County Jail where he was to be held on a no bail status.
