A WATERLOO MAN, CONVICTED OF A SEX OFFENSE, NOW FACES CHARGES IN FAYETTE COUNTY, FOR NOT REGISTERING WITH THE STATE WHEN HE MOVED. ON SATURDAY, THE FAYETTE COUNTY SHERIFF COMPLETED AN INVESTIGATION OF A SEX OFFENDER LIVING IN FAYETTE COUNTY, WHO FAILED TO REGISTER HIS LATEST LIVING ADDRESS. 64 YEAR OLD TIMOTHY CRANE WAS CHARGED WITH FAILURE TO COMPLY WITH STATE SEX OFFENDER REGISTRY REQUIREMENTS. AFTER AUTHORITIES ISSUED AN ARREST WARRANT, IT WAS DISCOVERED THAT CRANE WAS ALREADY IN CUSTODY, IN THE BLACK HAWK COUNTY JAIL, ON OTHER CHARGES. THE FAYETTE COUNTY SHERIFF THEN PUT A HOLD ON CRANE.
