Non-compliant sex offender arrested in Rexburg

A man is facing multiple charges after an incident at a Rexburg gas station early Wednesday morning.

Capt. Randy Lewis, of the Rexburg Police Department, said Tanner Penrod, 28 years old, was contacted by officers at about 2:30 a.m. after patrolling officers ran a check on his vehicle.

The check showed that Penrod was a non-compliant sex offender.

Lewis said officers on the scene noticed used syringes with substances still in them in Penrod’s car. The substance was later positively identified as methamphetamine.

Stolen property was also recovered in his car, along with several firearms.

“A convicted felon is not allowed to have firearms,” Lewis said.

Lewis said that in the process of arresting Penrod, Penrod managed to get back in his car and attempted to drive off.

“The officers were able to subdue him in the vehicle and get him out of there before he hurt himself or anyone else,” Lewis said.

Penrod was registered as a sex offender in 2008 in Madison County, according to the Idaho State Police.

Sex offenders are labeled as “non-compliant” when they fail to follow state or federal registration laws. This could include failure to report a change in address or to obtain appropriate identification, according to the International Association of Chiefs of Police.
