Thomas Conti – Repeat Sex Offender -Turns himself in


Thomas Conti, a registered sex offender who fled from authorities Thursday, turned himself in Friday, officials from the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office said.

Conti, 23, who lives in the 15000 block of 93rd Street in The Acreage area, reported to the Palm Beach County Jail about 2:15 p.m., officials said.

Detectives from the Sheriff’s Sexual Predator Offender Tracking Unit found Conti Thursday at the 3800 block of Blue Heron Boulevard. Deputies said Conti violated his probation by peeping at an 11-year-old in a bathroom stall.

As detectives tried to take Conti into custody, he got away on foot, officials said.

A search of the area by helicopter and canine units was unable to find him.

Luis Flores – a convicted child molester – Repeat Sex Offender


A 43-year-old registered sex offender is back in custody on charges of sodomizing his 27-year-old roommate Thursday afternoon and later physically assaulting the man in their shared apartment in San Carlos.

Luis Flores – a convicted child molester, according to the state’s sex offender database – was found hiding in another apartment in his neighborhood on Thursday night.

Police were called to Flores’ apartment in the 1100 block of Laurel Street at about 9:45 p.m. to respond to a report of a battery in progress. When officers arrived, they found Flores’ roommate on the sidewalk outside the apartment building, San Carlos police Sgt. Mark Robbins said.

The man told police he had just been physically assaulted by Flores, Robbins said. According to the alleged victim, Flores had sodomized him against his will earlier that day, the officer added.

Authorities transferred the man to San Mateo County General Hospital for treatment of his injuries.

Flores and his alleged victim had been roommates for a while, said Cmdr. Jon Read, who declined to specify the nature of the two men’s relationship.

No domestic violence charges were brought by police, Read said.

Instead, Flores was booked in the county jail at 7 a.m. Friday on suspicion of one felony count of sodomy of an unconscious victim, one felony count of sexual penetration with a foreign object and one misdemeanor count of battery, Deputy District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe said.

Flores, who is in custody in lieu of $100,000 bail, is scheduled to be arraigned Monday afternoon.

If convicted of all the charges, he faces 10 years in state prison.

Scott F. Lurken – Repeat Sex Offender – Multiple Victims

“We have reason to be very concerned that there are many other child victims out there who have not yet come forward”


Authorities in Palm Bay are looking into the possibility Thursday that one sex offender had more victims that they thought.

Scott F. Lurken was arrested on four counts of lewd and lascivious conduct and one count of sexual battery and booked into the Brevard County Jail, according to a press release.

A 9-year-old reported sexual battery and an 11-year-old girl said Lurken kissed her on the lips with his eyes closed while rubbing her back and stomach. Then, on June 1, a new victim, a 13-year-old girl, came forward and claimed that a similar situation involving Lurken happened to her, according to the press release.

“We have reason to be very concerned that there are many other child victims out there who have not yet come forward,” said Detective Greg Guillette of the Special Victims Unit in a press release. “Many times these victims are afraid to come forward, but it’s important in order to protect others.”
