SALISBURY — Authorities have obtained warrants for a convicted sex offender accused of moving from the state without notifying law enforcement.
Ewart Aldon Brummell, of Andrews Street, is expected to be charged with felony failure to notify officers of an address change, the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office said.
Deputies said Brummell did not respond in August to an address verification letter.
Officers went to the home and could not locate Brummell, the report said, and a detective called and left a message with the last known phone number for Brummell.
He called the detective back on Thursday and said he was staying in Maryland and planned to notify law enforcement when he got an apartment or house.
According to state statute, a convicted sex offender who intends to move to another state must meet with the sheriff or current county of residence at least three days before they intend to leave.
Authorities said Brummell is expected to be extradited back to Rowan County.
According to the North Carolina Department of Justice, Brummell was convicted of a sex offense in another state in 2008.
