Level III sex offender moves to Menahga

The Wadena County Sheriff's Office is announcing a community notification for a Level Three sex offender moving within the community of Menahga. Convicted sexual and predatory offenders have always been released to live in the community and law enforcement has the ability to register and track these offenders after their release from correctional facilities.

Chad Allen Mikiska, a Level III sex offender, was released Jan. 13 and is residing in the 35100 block of 219th Avenue in rural Menahga as of Feb. 28.

The purpose of the community notification is not to increase fear in the community, but to furnish information to enhance public safety and awareness. The addresses of all Level Three sex offenders are considered public information and are posted on the Minnesota Department of Corrections website listing the names, addresses and number of offenders within each county in Minnesota.
