Ardmore Police Officer Ian Naylor responded to what began as a routine pedestrian check Friday, according to the officer’s report.
The subject, later identified as Gary Mason, 38, was previously a registered sex offender in the area, but had moved to Oklahoma City, said APD Sgt. Brice Woolly.
Mason was taken into custody in the 1000 block of Isabel SW for a $5,000 warrant out of Oklahoma City for failure to register as a sex offender.
Mason was previously convicted of a felony count of failure to register in Carter County in 2017, with another count of the same dismissed in Marshall County that same year.
