Wanted Sex offender shows up for hearing

Authorities didn't have to look far for a sex offender who was wanted for failing to follow reporting requirements.

On Wednesday, a day after the Hernando Sheriff's Office put out a call for the public's help to locate him, Dewayne Royce McLendon Sr. was taken into custody when he appeared at the Hernando County Government Center for a court hearing on an unrelated drug charge, a Sheriff's Office spokeswoman said.

McLendon, 42, was last seen earlier this month in Spring Hill.
