South SA sex offender accused of failing to report address

Arturo Vega, 57, last verified address to SAPD in 2004

SAN ANTONIO – A convicted sex offender who is supposed to report his address to law enforcement officials last did so in 2004, records show. Now, he's facing new charges for failing to comply with sex offender registration rules.

Arturo Vega, 57, was convicted in 2000 of breaking into a home and indecency with a 15-year-old girl. He received 10 years probation for the charge. A judge also required him to register as a sex offender for life.

The state's sex offender registry shows Vega did that in 2000 and 2004 with the San Antonio Police Department.

"A warrant was issued for Vega's arrest, following an indictment filed with the Bexar County District Court. The indictment alleged that Vega failed to comply with sex offender registration conditions and absconded from supervision," said Deputy U.S. Marshal Chris Bozeman.

Vega is 5 feet 4 inches tall and weighs 145 pounds. He has black hair and brown eyes.

"His last known place of residence was on the South Side of San Antonio," Bozeman said.
