ELKHORN CITY, Ky. — A Pike County sex offender has been arrested on a charge of not keeping authorities informed of his current address.

Timothy Wayne Prichard, 50, was pulled over in a traffic stop Tuesday night in Elkhorn City. While running his information, the officer noticed the Elkhorn City address on his license did not match the Jonancy address listed with the sex offender registry.

Prichard reportedly admitted to the officer that he had been staying in Elkhorn City “off and on” for several weeks.

He was arrested on a charge of failure to comply with sex offender registration for not updating his address.

According to the registry, Prichard was convicted of rape in Ohio.
