Fargo police say sex offender accused of not registering is in custody
Police said in a news release earlier today that Patrick Allen Warcken, a 35-year-old Fargo man, was wanted for failure to register and for failure to comply with the terms of his parole.
Warcken, a moderate-risk offender, was convicted in 2004 of corruption of a minor in Barnes County. The victim was a 17-year-old female acquaintance. He is required to register until 2030.
Deputy Chief Pat Claus said in a later news release that Warcken was arrested in Valley City, N.D., and is being held in the jail in Barnes County.
