LAWRENCE COUNTY, AL (WAFF) -

Lawrence County Sheriff Gene Mitchell said that a joint effort investigation between Sheriff's Investigators and Alabama Probation and Parole Officers has led to the arrest of a Courtland man.

Mitchell said that Sheriff's deputies arrested 41-year-old Billy Delane Terry on Wednesday for failure of an adult sex offender to register with local law enforcement, parole violation, theft of property first degree, resisting arrest and attempting to elude.

Mitchell said that the arrest comes after investigators conducted a sex offender compliance check and discovered that Terry was not residing at the residence that had been registered with law enforcement. The Sheriff said that his investigators began working closely with probation and parole officers after learning that Terry had also failed to report with his parole officer as required by law.

Mitchell confirmed that investigators worked diligently to locate Terry and quickly learned that he was running from law enforcement.  Mitchell added that his officers were finally able to apprehend Terry on Wednesday after he was spotted at a Hatton area business. Terry ran from Sheriff's deputies when they arrived at the business. He said that a short foot chase ensued before deputies were able to apprehended Terry.

The Sheriff said that deputies also found Terry in possession of a stolen ATV, which Terry confessed to stealing. It was confirmed that Terry admitted to taking the four-wheeler to help him evade police in the event that he was chased.

Terry was booked into the Lawrence County Jail where he remains with no bond set at this time.
