An arrest warrant for Cecil A. Marten, 48, was issued Tuesday in Steuben County, and the sheriff's department issued a statement seeking tips from the public on his whereabouts.

Just after 5:30 p.m., officers found Marten at a home in Medaryville in northwest Indiana and arrested him without incident, the sheriff's department said.

He was booked into the Pulaski County Jail on a local felony charge of failure to register as an offender. He also has an outstanding felony warrant in Steuben County for failing to register as an offender.
