Seattle Police Department is alerting neighbors to a Level 3 sex offender who recently moved to the 9000 block of Greenwood Ave. N.
According to the Washington Association of Sheriffs and Police Chiefs’ website, Tyler Veidt was convicted in 2002 of first degree rape of a child and first degree burglary with sexual motivation.
He is no longer under Department of Corrections supervision.
Veidt is black, 5-11, 250 pounds, 30 years old, with black hair and brown eyes. Click here for more information and his picture.
Level 3 sex offenders pose the highest risk to re-offend. It is normal to feel upset, angry and worried about a registered sex offender living in your community. The Community Notification Act of 1990 requires sex offenders to register in the community where they live. The law also allows local law enforcement to make the public aware about Level 2 and Level 3 offenders. As all of these offenders have completed their sentence, they are free to live where they wish. Experts believe sex offenders are less likely to re-offend if they live and work in an environment free of harassment. Any actions taken against the listed sex offenders could result in arrest and prosecution as it is against the law to use this information in any way to threaten, intimidate or harass registered sex offenders. The SPD Sex Offender detectives will check on these offenders every 3 months to verify our information.
You can use 9-1-1 to report any and all suspicious activity.
Please call me to schedule a Block Watch meeting if your block is interested. My office phone at the precinct is (206) 684-7711.
