JONESTOWN, Texas -- What began as a sex offender compliance check quickly turned dangerous Wednesday in Jonestown.
"Let me see your hands, come on outside," said Sgt. Andre Anderson of the Jonestown Police Department.
Anderson gained permission to search inside a Jonestown home for a convicted sex offender who ran when he saw police.
"It is our obligation to make sure they are complying with what they're required to do," said Detective Jason Veselka.
U.S. Marshals, DPS and Jonestown police worked together to knock on a dozen doors, making sure the addresses were true and the sex offenders who lived there were properly complying with registration requirements.
When officers pulled up, Irfan Wadiwalla ran away.
"I got four kids. I'm not no child molester," Wadiwalla said.
Wadiwalla says he was 18 when he was charged for having an improper relationship with a teen girl. He spent four years in the penitentiary. Now that he's out he says it's nearly impossible to get a job with a felony on his record.
"She called me back for a job and told me she couldn't do nothing for me because of my felony," said Wadiwalla, talking about an employer.
Wadiwalla was not found out of compliance but could face charges for evading police.
"If no one's monitoring them basically they have free reign to move around the country and do what they want to do," Veselka said.
