RICHMOND, Va. -- A 19-year-old convicted sex offender who was last registered as living in Lunenburg County is now in custody, according to authorities.

Cody Dallas Garcia, who previously lived in the Victoria community of Lunenburg County, was wanted on three counts of failing to re-register as a sex offender, troopers said on Jan. 4.

Garcia "absconded" from Lunenburg County and "failed to update a new address as required by state law," troopers said.
