U.S. Marshals arrested on Thursday a York City man, who is also a convicted sex offender, for allegedly failing to comply with Megan's Law requirements.
Lavar Lee Smith, 32, was also wanted on a bench warrant for failing to appear in the York County Court of Common Pleas in March to answer to fleeing and eluding and other charges, according to court documents.
Smith was convicted of sexual assault in 2000 and ordered to register as a sex offender once he was released from prison in 2007, according to a news release from the U.S. Marshals Service.
After registering a number of addresses in York City, Smith listed his address as being in the 400 block of Juniper Street. But when he failed to show up to court, police learned he had moved and hadn't updated his address, the release says.
Smith was arrested by marshals and members of the Fugitive Task Force in the 600 block of West College Avenue about 8 a.m., the release says.
