Friday, August 08, 2014 - Updated: 10:17 AM

GLEN -- A fourth registered sex offender was arrested Wednesday as a result of a four-month review of sex offender registration compliance in Montgomery County.

Mark W. Preble, 48, of 200 Arron Lane, Altamont, was charged with a violation for failing to report a change of address.

During the investigation it was discovered that Preble had allegedly changed his address and failed to report the change to the sex offender registry, Sheriff Michael Amato reported. A warrant was issued and Preble was arrested without incident. Preble was arraigned in Glen town court and was remanded to the county jail on $2,500 cash bail. He is scheduled to reappear in court at a later time.

The sheriff's office completed the investigation called Operation Restore Montgomery County last month. The investigation involved record checks and face-to-face interviews with registered sex offenders to verify addresses, employers, vehicles and Internet accounts.

The enforcement operation resulted in the arrest of two other registered sex offenders on July 9, and an arrest on July 23. In addition, a number of corrections and updates were made to the sex offender registry.
