Convicted Beaufort County Sex Offender Arrested Again

A convicted sex offender from Beaufort County is back in jail after authorities say he moved and failed to report his new address.

On April 16th, Beaufort County Deputies say they were doing a routine residence check on Richard Gibbons at his residence on River Road in Blounts Creek.

Deputies were unable to make contact with the 42-year-old over a 6-day period.

After almost 2-months, Gibbons was arrested by the Pamlico County Sheriff's Office.

Gibbons was released after posting bond.
