A 25-year-old man was arrested this afternoon on charge of failing to register as a sex offender after he moved to Manatee from Delaware, according to the Manatee County Sheriff's Office.
Marcus D. Palacios was arrested about 3:45 p.m. at his residence in the 4500 block of 19th Street Circle West.
Sheriff's detectives began investigating Palacios, after the Florida Department of Law Enforcement advised that he may have been living in the area without registering as a sexual offender for a conviction in Delaware.
Manatee detectives determined that Palacios had been in the area for three months, according to a news release.
Palacios was being held at the Manatee County jail on $50,000 bond for a charge of failure to register as a sex offender.
