While trying to keep children safe on Halloween, Precinct 6 deputy constables found some sex offenders breaking the rules in east Houston.Deputy Constables checked up on the 60 registered sex offenders who live in Precinct 6. It didn't take long before they found a violation. A yard sale was going on at the home of a registered sex offender.

"This is the deal. There's ladies up there, they got kids with them," explained Deputy Constable Robert Avendano. "I don't know if he is there or not, but they are still enticing kids by having a garage sale."

The deputies documented that a garage sale was taking place. It's unclear what will happen to the sex offender who lives there.

At last check, Precinct 6 reported that they did make one arrest of a registered sex offender who was passing out candy to children. A motion will be filed to revoke his probation.
