LEE COUNTY, Fla. -- Fox 4 is hearing from Walmart after a sex offender registered his home address as the Lehigh Acres store.

Walmart managers say they searched the store and even the parking lots but did not find 27-year-old Isaiah Jones.

4 in Your Corner wants to be clear, we don't have any direct evidence Jones ever lived in the store.  But a store employee did tell us they've seen Jones around the store a handful of times.

The Lee County Sheriff's Office says Walmart would have to tell deputies Jones was trespassing, and he would have to be on the property at the time sheriff's deputies arrive.
