Berrien County - A sex offender on the run from the law for more than 16-years was captured in Berrien County.

46-year-old James Stevens has been wanted in Florida since 1991. He was arrested in Volusia County for sexual assault of a child under the age of 16.

He took off, violating parole and never registered his sex offender status.

A tip helped Berrien County investigators locate and arrest him in Enigma.

"Sex offenders have found Berrien County to be a safe haven but since taking office we are actively searching them out, keeping up with them as federal law states, reporting and finding out as much information on them as we can, where they live," says Berrien County Sheriff Anthony Heath.

They update their sex offender information every month.

Stevens will soon be sent back to Florida.
