A 39-year-old Putnam Valley man, who is a level-two sex offender, is facing a felony charge after he moved from his Finch Lane residence and failed to notify officials of his new address, police say.
Authorities discovered in late June that Jamon Johnson was no longer residing at the residence he last reported to the State of New York, according a statement released Tuesday. He allegedly left his Putnam Valley home and "took up residency at several locations over a four-month period of time."
Investigator James Babcock from the Putnam County Sheriff's Bureau of Criminal Investigation took the case. His probe led to Putnam Valley Town Justice Louis DeCarlo issuing an arrest warrant. It charged Johnson with failing to register a change of address within 10 days of moving, a felony in the violation of that state corrections law.
Johnson, accompanied by his lawyer, turned himself in at the sheriff's office Aug. 8, according to police. He was arrested on the warrant, arraigned before Putnam County Court Judge James T. Rooney and released without bail. He is due in Putnam Valley Justice Court Sept. 9.
