Darin Lemon, 58, of Bunnell was arrested on June 12 for failure to properly re-register as a sex offender in the State of Florida in April 2024.

Lemon is required to re-register quarterly throughout the year in January, April, July, and October. The Florida Department of Law Enforcement Sex Offender/Predator database indicated that Lemon’s most recent sex offender registration was completed on January 31, 2024.

Master Detective Crosby was able to obtain an arrest warrant for Lemon regarding his failure to properly re-register as a sex offender. The warrant carried a bond amount of $50,000 with nationwide extradition, as well as holding him on no bond, due to the fact he is currently on probation for unrelated charges. 

Deputies were able to locate Lemon at his residence the night of June 12. When deputies informed Lemon that he was under arrest, Lemon refused to cooperate by physically and verbally resisting deputies while they tried to restrain him. In addition to the warrant arrest, Lemon was also arrested for Resisting Arrest without Violence.

“We will always hold registered sex offenders to comply with their offender regulations and if they don’t, they will go to the Green Roof Inn,” said Sheriff Rick Staly. “It is imperative that sex offenders properly re-register in a timely manner and keep their address up to date so that nearby residents know who is living around them. Our Major Case Unit is always conducting checks to ensure sex offenders are in compliance to keep our community safer.”
