The Lakewood Police Department has issued an all-points bulletin for Nick Medina, a sexually violent predator who was released from prison last month and vanished a few weeks later.
Turns out Medina isn't the only sexually violent predator in Lakewood. There are seven others who are required by law to keep local authorities -- and by extension, the public -- abreast of where they're living. Get information about where they are, and learn more about the search for Medina below.
According to the LPD, Medina completed his term with the Colorado Department of Corrections in mid-June. His original crime was sexual assault on a child, which the online Sex Offender Archive specifies as sex assault -- ten-year age difference. The LPD notes that he's also been associated with local gang activity.
Medina subsequently let the cops know he would be residing at the Lakewood Lodge, 5601 West Colfax, in room number seven -- the same place another sexually violent predator listed below resides. But when cops checked in on him earlier this month, they discovered that he'd split without notifying them. Hence, the APB, which describes him as potentially dangerous.
Anyone with information about Medina's whereabouts is encouraged to call their local police or the Lakewood cops at 303-987-7111.
As for the other sexually violent predators in Lakewood, law enforcers know where they are and post the locations on the city's website. In most cases, the Sex Offender Archive offers more detailed information, but the addresses have changed in several cases, showing that many of them move around -- a lot. We've included the updated info for each, along with details about Medina following a larger look at his booking photo.
