PICKAWAY COUNTY OHIO - A West Virginia man wanted on failure to register charges has been arrested in Ohio.

Robert Harry Whittamore was arrested Friday by the US Marshals Service in Commercial Point, Ohio on four counts of failure to register as a sex offender. The warrant was for Whittamore's second offense for failure to register.

Whittamore is required to register as a sex offender after a 1996 conviction of sexual assault and first degree criminal sexual conduct in Michigan. The victims in this case were both under the age of 13.

He is currently in the Pickaway County Ohio jail pending extradition back to West Virginia.
