Sex Offender Surrenders After Removing GPS Tracking Device

Johnny Ray Morgan of Palm Bay is on probation for having sexually battered a child in 1995. After cutting off his court-ordered GPS tracking device, his probation officer was  immediately notified.

Probation officials then alerted Palm Bay police, who searched wooded locations in which Morgan had before camped, as recorded by previous GPS tracking data received. Morgan’s belongings and his ankle bracelet were found. However, he was not there.

A few days after the alert, Morgan turned himself in to the Brevard County Detention Center. He currently is being held without bond, facing a new charge of violating his probation.
