A registered sex offender, wanted for not notifying lawmen of his new address, has turned himself into authorities.
Lenoir County deputies alerted the media Wednesday that Walter Kilpatrick of Kinston was wanted by them. Several hours later the man turned himself in at the courthouse.
Kilpatrick was jailed on a $25,000 bond.
Deputies in Lenoir County are looking for a registered sex offender who they say has failed to change his address.
Walter Kilpatrick had been living on Central Avenue in Kinston. Deputies say they believe Kilpatrick is still living in the Kinston area, but has not notified them of his new address.
Kilpatrick is 42-years-old, 5'10", weighs 187 pounds. The man has black hair, brown eyes and "Walt baby" tattooed on his right arm. He was convicted in 2000 for taking indecent liberties with a minor.
The Sheriff's Office is posting a reward for information that leads to his arrest.
