Wanted sex offender billboards are popping up in South Carolina. The billboards don’t state the nature of the offense and are the result of a partnership between Richland County Sheriff’s Department, U.S. Marshals, CrimeStoppers and Lamar Advertising.
The plan is to arrest fugitives who are wanted for failing to register as sex offenders under South Carolina’s law. The first wanted sex offender billboards feature two men. Once the advertised offenders are captured, new fugitives will replace them.
