Sexual offender charge results from investigation following traffic stop

paris police carA continuing investigation into a Paris man arrested during a traffic stop last Thursday has led to more charges against Bradley Cornelius Frazier, 28.

Paris police officers arrested Frazier on narcotics charges after stopping him in the 500 block of East Grove St.

As a result of that traffic stop, further investigation revealed that Frazier is a registered sex offender, police department spokesman Curtis Garrett said.

Detectives found that Frazier was living in the 600 block of East Cherry St. For failing to comply with sex offender registration requirements, Frazier was subsequently charged with an additional felony of failing to register as a sex offender.

After a search warrant was executed on Frazier’s residence, Frazier was also charged with possession of a firearm by a felon, Garrett said
