A 59-year-old transient man was arrested Tuesday on suspicion of failing to register as a sex offender, Roseburg police said today.
Larry Eugene Sheridan was contacted camping in a vacant lot at 10:40 p.m. in the area of Winchester Avenue and Shambrook Avenue and drinking a 40-ounce beer.
Sheridan initially provided a false name to officers, police said.
The officer learned that Sheridan is a sex offender and had not registered his address.
He was arrested on suspicion of failure to register as a sex offender, providing false information to a police officer and drinking in public.
He was taken to the Douglas County Jail, where he was held today in lieu of $12,500 bail.
