JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) – Brian Edward Boose just wanted to spend the holidays with his family.

Too bad the 34-year-old registered sex offender who is wanted out of Georgia didn't tell police.

Jonesboro police arrested Boose at a home in the 700-block of Craighead Road after receiving an anonymous tip.

According to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation's Sex Offender Registry, Boose was convicted on September 12, 2013, of sexual battery against a child under the age of 16.

After he was read his Miranda rights and signed a waiver, Jonesboro detectives said Boose admit since his recent release he had been staying in Jonesboro at several different locations.

Boose told police he knew he needed to report; but, he "wanted to be with family for the holidays," the incident report stated.

Boose is charged with failure to register/comply with reporting requirements, registered offender/incorrect permanent physical address on ID card or driver's license, and an out of town warrant.  He is being held in the Craighead County Detention Center.

This was the third time in less than two months that Jonesboro police have arrested Boose for failing to comply with registration requirements. 

He was arrested on November 26 and, according to police records, on November 13.

Boose is scheduled to appear in court January 31.  

JPD Sgt. Doug Formon says Boose has a hold in DeKalb County, Georgia for a probation violation warrant, which means when he is released in Jonesboro he will immediately be picked up by Georgia law enforcement and taken to face charges there.

At his court appearance in Jonesboro, Boose will face two counts of failing to register as a sex offender. Sgt. Formon says each count carries a possible sentence of three to 10 years in prison and up to a $10, 000 fine.
