This weekend, law enforcement is doing a round-up of the most wanted sex offenders across Colorado. The top 100 are wanted for allegedly not telling cops where they live.

It's all part of Operation Shepherd 2009. This state-wide effort is already turning up some good leads. The U.S. Marshal's Office tells 11 News there have been five arrests so far including:

David Lucero from Colorado Springs
Dennis Wyatt from Pueblo County
Adam Andrews from Aurora
Christopher Ellis from Denver
Jaime Gutierrez from Lakewood

Outside of the top 100 sex offenders, 72 others have been arrested as of Friday and 1902 Compliance Checks.

"We'll have some of our SWAT officers, some of our tactical officers that do fugitive round-up. We'll go out and try to capture some of these folks," said Lt. David Whitlock with the Colorado Springs Police Department.

The U.S. Marshal's Office put out the Top 100 list for 2009. The list has faces, names, and the type of crime the offenders committed. Many of the offenders are considered dangerous. "We certainly think anyone who violates the law can potentially be dangerous. But, certainly, there's a great deal of interest in sex offenses," said Lt. Whitlock.

Many of the offenders on the list are also wanted on other crimes including other sex offenses.

    When are you going to do a round-up for the 100 most wanted criminals. I hope you do it soon, and get at least one: Agustin Montano, the killer of my son Leonardo Perez on 09-21-2003 in Colorado Springs
