OAK HARBOR — Police are warning residents about Daniel M. Christianson, a convicted sex offender who will be living in the Oak Harbor area.

A public meeting is planned for 6:30 p.m. Thursday at the Heller Road Fire Station, 2720 Heller Road, Oak Harbor, according to the Island County Sheriff’s Office.
