 The village police department arrested a convicted sex offender without incident Friday on an allegation he failed to register his change of address.

"Timothy Workman was wanted on a felony warrant for failing to register his change of address with the Ohio Adult Parole Authority in Cleveland," Wakeman Police Chief Tim Hunker said.

The 53-year-old Mansfield man was a passenger in a vehicle stopped Friday on East Main Street in Wakeman.

"Workman is a convicted sex offender and had served five years in prison for his crime, which was committed in 2006 and involved multiple juveniles," Hunker said.

Specific information about Workman's conviction and registration requirements weren't available at press time from the Cuyahoga County Sheriff's Office.

After the local traffic stop, Workman was transported to the Huron County Jail without incident. He must post a $5,000 bond before being released from custody.

The driver, Wakeman resident Joshua Workman, 30, of 6060 U.S. 20, Lot 11, whose age wasn't provided, was charged with driving with a suspended license and released. Hunker said the driver is Timothy Workman's stepson.
