Prince Frederick, MD- The Calvert County Sheriff’s Office is seeking the whereabouts of Jacob Steven Traas.

Traas is wanted for Failure to Appear: Sex Offender Registry.

Traas was convicted in St. Mary’s County stemming from a 2009 incident in which he was charged with a 3rd-degree sex offense. In Maryland, a Third-degree sexual assault is a felony and is defined as engaging in any form of sexual contact, short of rape, without the victim’s consent, when the offender uses any dangerous weapon. It also includes sexual contact with mentally disabled victims and certain statutory rape charges. We do not have the charging documents at this time to specifically state what transpired for Mr. Traas to be charged with this crime.

Mr. Traas has also failed to register at least one other time in Calvert County, in February 2005.

Anyone with information in regards to Traas is asked to please contact the Calvert County Sheriff’s Office at 410) 535-2800 and or DFC Chip Ward at (443) 532-0603.
