Sheriff's Office to Host Level 3 Predator Notification Meeting Oct. 6 in Silver Creek Township

A Message from the Wright County Sheriff’s Office

Level 3 Predatory Offender Information

According to Minnesota Statute 244.052, the Wright County Sheriff’s Office is releasing information regarding David John Kangas Jr., a Level 3 registrant subject to public notification. Mr. Kangas will be moving to rural Silver Creek Twp., on or after September 28, 2021. This individual has served the sentence imposed on him by the court and is transitioning into the community. This notification is not intended to increase fear, but rather raise awareness. Law enforcement believes that an informed public is a safer public. 

There will be a public notification meeting hosted by the Wright County Sheriff’s Office with assistance from the Minnesota Department of Corrections at the Silver Creek Township Hall (3827 134th St NW) at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 6.

Be aware that this notification is meant to provide information and alleviate fear, not create it. The most important factor to consider is that people who commit sex crimes have always lived in our communities. The difference is that since the 1990s, Minnesota statutes allow local law enforcement to inform citizens of certain offender’s general whereabouts. With the passage of the Community Notification Act, law enforcement may now share information about many of these individuals with the public. Abuse of this information to threaten, harass or intimidate a registered person could be charged as a crime. Such abuses could potentially end the ability of law enforcement to provide these notifications.

Should you have any questions about this information please contact Sergeant Eric Leander at the Wright County Sheriff’s Office (763) 682-7645.
