A registered sex offender wanted on charges he failed to notify authorities of a change of address has been extradited back to the east.
The Beaufort County Sheriff's Office says 46-year-old Clarence Thigpen was charged left the state. He was arrested in April in New York, but fought extradition, so a governor's warrant was issued.
He's now in the Beaufort County Detention Center. Deputies say a call about a domestic dispute is what tipped them off that he wasn't living where he said he was.
