STEUBEN COUNTY, Ind. (WANE) A convicted sex offender is back behind bars after being captured Friday morning by the Steuben County Sheriff’s detectives and the U.S. Marshals Service.

A warrant was issued for Lexie D. Martin on Thursday after the sheriff’s department became aware that he hadn’t reported a change in his status within a certain time frame as required by law.

Once the warrant was issued, the sheriff’s department contacted the U.S. Marshals Service to help find Martin.

He was located just after 10:40 am in rural northwestern Steuben County and was taken into custody.

Martin was being held in the Steuben County Jail on a $3,000 bond.
