QA Press Release: Absconded Sex Offender Caught


Incident:Non-Compliant Sex Offender


Arrested: Dyllan Otto Naecker, 29yoa, last known address Grasonville MD


Charges: Sex Off Reg-Fail to Notify




Narrative: Sheriff R. Gery “Gary” Hofmann, III reports that on July 30, 2012 the Queen Anne’s County Office of the Sheriff initiated an investigation to locate Dyllan Otto Naecker. Sheriff Hofmann reports that Naecker had been a registered sex offender residing in the Grasonville area.


On July 27, 2012 the Criminal Investigations Unit of the Office of the Sheriff received information that Naecker was no longer living at the address listed in his sex offender registry. D/Sgt. B. Layton reported that Naecker is Tier 3 registered sex offender and as such Naecker has to make notification within 72hours of any address change.


D/Sgt. Layton’s investigation revealed that after Naecker’s June 2012 re-registration with the Office of the Sheriff Naecker had possibly fled from Grasonville and had relocated to the Bluefield Virginia area. A joint investigation with the US Marshals Office resulted in Naecker being possibly located in the Tazewell County Virginia area.


Sheriff Hofmann reports that on September 12, 2012 the Tazewell County Virginia Sheriff’s Office, assisted by the US Marshal’s Office, arrested Dyllan Otto Naecker without incident at a residence in Tazewell County Virginia. Naecker is being held in Tazewell County Virginia in reference to the arrest warrant through Queen Anne’s County, for failing to notify of his address change, as well as two additional arrest warrants from the state of Maryland. Additional charges against Naecker are pending in Tazewell County Virginia. A hearing in reference to extradition and the pending charges in Virginia is scheduled for the week of September 17, 2012.
