RANGELEY, Maine — Police in a Maine town say they have arrested a New Hampshire man on charges he failed to register as a sex offender in his home state.

Rangeley police say 34-year-old Jerome Carter of Claremont, N.H., was arrested Saturday on a New Hampshire warrant that charges him with contempt of court, failure to register as a sex offender, and being a fugitive from justice.

Rangeley Police officer Jared Austin says that after Carter was arrested on the New Hampshire warrant he was charged with failing to register as a sex offender in Maine.
