A convicted sex offender who moved to our area and didn't register with police got caught Tuesday.
38 year old Timothy Smith formerly of Maryland moved to the Bogue Pines Mobile Home Park a few months ago.
Carteret County Sheriffs Deputies arrested him and put him in jail on a 51-thousand dollar bond. Deputies say Smith was convicted in 1995 for a "third degree" sex offense that happened in Maryland with a 12 year old girl.
Smith was eventually released on probation but violated it in 2007 when he moved and didn't register with police. Smith was also wanted for burglary and theft.
