A convicted New York sex offender was arrested in Gibson County after failing to register his new address to authorities.

The Gibson County Sheriff's Office said they received a tip that 59-year-old Ronald Preston Jr., of Sharon, SC., had been living at the Weather Rock Campground in Haubstadt since June 15, 2015.

A sergeant with the sheriff's office arrested Ronald after a communications officer advised there was no documentation recording his new address.

He was taken to the Gibson County Jail and charged with failure to register a level 6 felony.

The communications officer also discovered Ronald had six outstanding warrants for failure to register out of Virginia.
