LAS VEGAS (AP) — Authorities say a 30-year-old registered sex offender who had been sought in California on a parole violation is in custody at a Las Vegas jail.

Las Vegas police say Martin G. Suarez was arrested Tuesday on a warrant from California, and may also face charges of being an ex-felon in possession of a firearm and evading police in a stolen vehicle.

Records showed he was being held Thursday as a fugitive at the Clark County jail pending an appearance before a judge and his transfer in custody to California.

Police say a multi-jurisdictional team of federal agents and local police found Suarez had been living in Henderson.

The department says Suarez has a criminal history in California involving a variety of offenses dating to 2000.
