RICHMOND, Va. -- A convicted sex offender was arrested Monday after he showed up at his child's daycare to pick up his daughter. Duane C. Griffin, 34, of Richmond, was charged with one felony charge of prohibited entry onto school or other property. Police did not disclose the name or location of the daycare.

"The Virginia State Police Sex Offender Investigative Unit received a tip about Griffin making routine visits to and from the daycare facility with his young daughter. State police followed up on the information and found Griffin to be in direct violation of state law that prohibits convicted violent sex offenders from entering any school property," a Virginia State Police spokesperson said. "Anyone seeking information concerning convicted sex offenders living and working within the Commonwealth can access the Sex Offender and Crimes Against Minors Registry online."
