Kootenai County Sex offender arrested in Spokane

The Spokane Police Department arrested 35-year-old Joseph D. Broadsword on Friday after several tips from the public.

KOOTENAI COUNTY, Idaho — The Spokane Police Department located and arrested a Kootenai County registered sex offender on Friday.

The Kootenai County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement that Spokane officers arrested 35-year-old Joseph D. Broadsword after several tips from the public.

The Sheriff’s Office said Broadsword moved out of the Post Falls mobile home park where he was living but didn’t notify the Sheriff’s Office of his address change as he is required to do. KCSO added that they have not been able to reach Broadsword over the phone as his phone numbers are no longer working.

Detectives believe that Broadsword is currently living a “transient lifestyle,” but they do not know where he may be.

“At this time, it is safe to say that active/wanted registered sex offender Joseph D. Broadsword is missing & unaccounted for,” KCSO said in a written news release.

KCSO said Broadsword has an active, nationwide extradition warrant for his arrest, which is related to a previous ‘fail to register’ charge earlier this year. The Sheriff’s Office said Broadsword has a lengthy criminal past with the Kootenai County Sheriff’s Office, most of which was when he was a juvenile.
