Police on Friday morning arrested a convicted sex offender wanted for allegedly violating the state's Megan's Law after finding the man hiding under a bed, according to a news release from the U.S. Marshals Service.

Torrence E. Vaughn, 29, was wanted for failing to register as a sex offender, the news release states; he was convicted in New Jersey in 1998 of sexual assault.

In April 2012, York City Police arrested Torrence for allegedly violating Megan's Law conditions; he then failed to appear in court on the charge, according to the news release.

Members of the U.S. Marshals Service fugitive task force found Torrence hiding under a bed in a home in the 400 block of South Duke Street in York City about 6:30 a.m. Friday, according to the marshals service.

The task force is comprised of U.S. marshals, York City police officers, York County sheriff's deputies and members of the York County District Attorney's Office.
