Delaware State Police are advising Dover residents of a homeless sex offender who is living somewhere in the area.
The man is Richard C. August, 43. August was convicted in January 2012 for unlawful sexual contact.
Police emphasize that August is not wanted for any crime; state law requires police to notify area residents when a known sex offender is living in their neighborhood. Law enforcement officials use the media to notify the entire community when a sex offender is listed as homeless.
August is a Tier II or moderate risk offender.
He is described as a white man, standing 6 feet 6 inches in height, weighing 278 pounds with blond or strawberry hair and blue eyes. He has tattoos on both arms.
Anyone with information that August is occupying a residence in the Dover area is asked to call (302) 672-5306, or use the Delaware State Police Mobile Crime Tip Application available at www.delaware.gov/apps.
Information also may be provided to Delaware Crime Stoppers at (800) TIP-3333. Information also may be provided via the Internet at www.tipsubmit.com. Send an anonymous tip by text to 274637 (CRIMES) using the keyword “DSP.”
