Deputies: Sex offender failed to update photo, arrested on new charges

Investigators report that a 48-year-old Lodi resident was arrested earlier this week after failing to update his sex offender registry photo, as required by New York State Law.

Carl T. Arden was arrested in violation of the NYS Corrections Law regulating Sexual Offenders.

Investigators report that Arden was mandated by law to update his photograph every three years as a designated Level 1 sex offender.

He failed to provide his photo to investigators and was subsequently arrested after an arrest warrant was issued out of the Lodi Town Court by Justice VanCleef.

The Sheriff’s Office reports that Arden was held at the LEC to be arraigned in the CAP Court.

Arden was released on his own recognizance and will appear on November 30th in the Town of Romulus Court.
