The Parsons Registered Offender Program leads to an arrest of a non-compliant drug offender.
On April 20th, PROP began an investigation into Nichole L. Cardoza, who is a registered drug offender stemming from a 2022 conviction for distribution of controlled substance causing great bodily harm. On April 21st, Parsons Police officers began following up on the case and learned that Cardoza had moved from her registered address to another. She had not notified the registrar at the Labette County Sheriff's Office of the change of address.
Cardoza was found in violation of three of her registration requirements, failing to register quarterly, failing to register a new address after moving and failure to annually renew her Kansas driver's or ID card. Cardoza was charged with violations of the Offender Registration Act and issued a $10,000 dollar bond.
