Police ask for public's help to locate missing sex offender


St. Cloud Police are seeking the public's help to locate a level III predatory offender who is not in compliance with laws that require him to register where he's living with police, according to reports.

Dagan Michael Lasart, 32, was last seen in Bloomington, where he was registered as homeless. He had recently left the St. Cloud area, where he was also registered as a homeless offender, KSTP reports.

The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension says Lasart is not in compliance with Minnesota Predatory Offender Registry requirements, which state that he must provide current location information to law enforcement officials.

Lasart has a history of registration noncompliance with the Bureau of Criminal Apprehension, KSTP says. The Bureau of Criminal Apprehension says if a sex offender fails to register his or her address it is considered a felony, which carries a mandatory minimum sentence of one year and one day in prison for the first offense. Repeat registration violations carry additional prison time.

Police told the St. Cloud Times that Lasart was convicted of a sex crime against a woman after he used a weapon to enter her home without permission.

A level III classification means state officials have determined an offender has the highest risk of reoffending, the Monticello Times reports.

Anyone with information on Lasart's whereabouts is asked to contact St. Cloud police at 320-251-1200.
