ALBUQUERQUE (CN) - Sheriff's deputies arrested a homeless sex offender and charged him with failing to notify them he had moved out of a Dumpster.

The Bernalillo County Sheriff's Department said Charles Mader, 47, violated his sex-offender registration requirement when he failed to report within 10 days that he had moved out of the Dumpster he had given as his address.

Deputies found Mader at a homeless shelter and arrested him.

Mader told KOB-TV he was not familiar with the registration rules, but the Sheriff's Department said it had reminded him several times what the rules are.

If Mader fails to register for a third time, he faces up to 3 years in jail.
