WADENA - A complaint warrant was issued last week for a sex offender with a registered address in Verndale, though he apparently hasn't lived at that location for years.

On May 6, Wadena County sheriff's investigators were conducting routine predatory sex offender compliance checks when they went to the registered address of Thomas Wayne Bowen, 31, Verndale, court documents said.

Bowen was not at the residence, and authorities learned the current resident at the address given has lived there for about two years and has never heard of Bowen.

Bowen has active warrants out of Pine County and Chisago County for predatory offender violations. A complaint warrant was issued by Wadena County District Court on June 1 for Bowen, and he was charged with violating the predatory offender registration procedure.
