Megan's Law offender arrested in Etters, police say

Posted: Updated:
ETTERS, Pa. (WHTM) -

An Etters man convicted for indecent assault of a minor was arrested Saturday for not registering his new address, according to police.

Matthew Smeltzer, 45, told authorities he moved from his home on Stillhouse Lane to the 300 block of Valley Road last fall, Fairview Township police said.

As a Tier III sexual offender under Megan's Law, he is required to update his address with state police quarterly, police said.

Smeltzer also admitted that he stays at a Beinhower Road home with his girlfriend and her two children, according to police.

Having contact with children is a violation of his probation, police said.

Officers had been called to the Beinhower Road address Saturday afternoon for a domestic disturbance.

They said Smeltzer was involved in the disturbance.

He was taken into custody and charged with a felony count of failure to comply with registration requirements.

He is also facing penalties from York County Probation for the other violations.
