A homeless man has been arrested in New Mexico for failing to notify police that he moved out of the rubbish skip he listed as his address.
Charles Mader, a convicted sex offender, is required to give the Bernalillo County Sheriff's Department in Albuquerque a physical address.
Detectives said he violated his sex offender registration requirement after moving out of the bin and failing to report the move within 10 days.
Deputies found Mader at a homeless shelter and arrested him.
He said he did not understand some of the registration rules.
Mader could face up to three years in jail for failing to register for a third time.
