Registered sex offender caught living with runaway teen

- A registered sex offender has been arrested after police said he was found at a Gastonia motel with a runaway teen. 

Maderkis Deyawn Rollinson was taken into custody Monday, June 20 for a sexual offender probation violation.

Officials traced Rollinson on his monitor bracelet to a Super 8 motel in Gastonia where he was found living with the teenager. 

Not informing officials of his new address and being in the presence of a minor are both violations of his sex offender status, police said. 

He was taken into custody on a $50,000 secured bond. Rollinson has since posted bond and has received a new monitoring bracelet.

Police said Rollinson has a previous charge of indecent liberties with a child.
