A convicted sex offender was arrested July 3 and charged with committing violations of the terms of court-mandated sex offender registration, according to Yavapai County Sheriff’s spokesman Dwight D’Evelyn.

Andrew Ryan Adams, 30, is a level 3 — or high risk — offender.

“Detectives were notified that Adams failed to register an address change within 72 hours with the Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office as required. In June of 2018, Adams moved from his residence in the 4000 block of East Bridle Path in Cottonwood to an undisclosed location in the Village of Oak Creek,” D’Evelyn said. “Adams’ spouse told detectives he had not been living at his Bridle Path home for approximately one month.”

Adams is also accused of violating an electronic registration statute by failing to document on registration forms two Facebook accounts used to communicate on the internet.

D’Evelyn said detectives were able to positively identify the Facebook profile photos as those of Adams and noted activity indicating he was using the accounts on a regular basis.

When Adams was arrested, a search turned up marijuana and meth pipes, resulting in two more charges, D’Evelyn said.

Adams was booked at the Camp Verde jail on a $50,000 bond.
