MARION, NC (FOX Carolina) -

McDowell County deputies said a registered sex offender was arrested after moving to an address in the county that was within 1,000 feet of a school.

Deputies said Timothy Andrew Ledford, 33, of Sugar Hill Road in Marion, was charged with a sex offender registry violation.

Ledford is a sex offender registered in Catawba County who was wanted for moving from that county without notifying the sheriff’s office there.

On Thursday, Feb. 22, deputies said they arrested Ledford at his Sugar Hill Road residence and discovered he had been living near West Marion Elementary School.

By law, registered sex offenders aren’t allowed to reside within 1,000 feet of a school or day care, deputies said.
