Police arrested a convicted sex offender from Ohio in Carroll County after failing to comply with sex offender registration requirements.
Stanley S. Snow II, 29, was arrested Jan. 30 by the U.S. Marshall Service and Carroll County Sheriff's Office officials after the U.S. Marshals received a tip that Snow was in Carroll County, a Carroll County Sheriff's Office release said.
Snow had failed to notify authorities in Ohio that he was moving to Kentucky, and he did not register as a sex offender after moving to Kentucky, Loren Carl, the U.S. Marshal for the Eastern District of Kentucky, said in a release. Snow had moved to Carroll County to be with his girlfriend, the release said.
Carl's agency had received a tip from Ohio, where Snow has a warrant out for his arrest. The U.S. Marshal Service requested that the Carroll County Sheriff's Office assist in finding Snow.
"When (Snow) crossed state lines, it became a violation of the Adam Walsh Act, which is a federal offense," Carl said.
Snow attempted to hide from authorities on Jan. 30, the release said, but police were able to locate and take him into custody around 2 p.m.
Snow had been charged in December 2004 with having sexual intercourse with a 15-year-old girl, the release said. He pleaded guilty to attempted unlawful sexual contact with a minor and was classified as a sex offender, which requires him to register with state agencies.
Warrants were issued for Snow in Cuyahoga County in January and November 2012 for failure to notify officials of an address change and failure to verify his address. After his arrest in Carroll County, Snow was also charged with failure to comply with sex offender registry and use of a social network by a sex offender.
Snow remains lodged in the Carroll County Detention Center following his arrest.
