A convicted sex offender who was last registered as a homeless man in Lancaster County was arrested by a U.S. Marshals Service task force Wednesday at a hotel in York.
Scott B. Kolocin, 46, failed to keep his registration as a sex offender current and may have tried to evade authorities by relocating to York, where he originally was convicted of indecent assault in 2002, according to a news release from the U.S. Marshals Service.
The task force confronted Kolocin on Wednesday morning at a hotel, where they arrested him, the release states.
Kolocin is registered as a tier three offender on the state police's . He was convicted March 13, 2002, and was first required to register with the database in July of that year, after his release from prison, the website indicates.
While Kolocin did check in with authorities in June, in which he indicated he was homeless and living in Lancaster City, he missed his next required check-in date earlier this month with the Lancaster Police Department, the U.S. Marshals Service news release states.
The task force learned that Kolocin was likely hiding in the York area and eventually tracked him to the hotel around 9 a.m. in the 3400 block of Susquehanna Trail.
Following his arrest, Kolocin was handed over to York County Sheriffs Central Booking Unit, where he was arraigned on charges of failing to register as a sex offender and and failure to maintain his registration requirements, police said.
No bail or attorney information was available for Kolocin as of Wednesday afternoon.
