Convicted Sex Offender Flees Illinois, Arrested in Bulloch Co.

Posted: Updated:

Just one month after a man took up residence and registered as a sex offender in Bulloch County, deputies arrested him after learning he was wanted in Illinois.

Investigators say Donald Malone filed paperwork on September 27, giving an address for Park Place Apartments on Lanier Drive. Criminal records showed that Malone was convicted in 2007 for Aggravated Sexual Abuse of a Minor in Will County, Illinois.

This week, Bulloch County investigators caught wind of an arrest warrant issued for 25-year-old Malone in Will County for failure to register as a sex offender.

Deputies tracked him down and arrested him after a brief pursuit at Stadium Walk Apartments on Lanier Drive. Malone is at the Bulloch County Jail, awaiting extradition to Illinois.
