Vanderburgh County Sheriff's Deputies and Indiana State Troopers arrest a wanted sex offender.

The Sheriff's Office says Katawn Omdu Tapp was wanted on a felony warrant for failure to register as a sex offender with a prior.

Officers tracked the 37-year-old Tapp to a home in Posey County on Tuesday night and arrested him.

He is being held without bond at the Vanderburgh County Jail.

Also under arrest is Deanna Payne Cook.

Officers say the 27-year-old tried to hide the fact that Tapp was hiding in the home.

She's charged with assisting a criminal and is being held in the Posey County Jail on $1,000 bond.
