Daniel Johnson, 31

PRESCOTT - Police arrested 31-year-old Prescott resident Daniel Johnson Wednesday on charges of failing to register as a sex offender.

Undercover officers had been looking for Johnson and, while doing surveillance, recognized him as a passenger in a vehicle they stopped.

Sex offenders have 72-hours to notify local police of their whereabouts when they move, police said in a press release.

Police booked Johnson into jail where authorities set a $7,500 cash bond for his release pending a court hearing on Thursday.

Police also arrested 29-year-old Prescott resident Sarah Garrity, who was driving the vehicle Johnson was in, on charges of driving under the influence. Police said they smelled marijuana in the vehicle when they made the stop.

Police cited and released Garrity.
