District Court, Kandiyohi County, Oct. 7

Eloy Carranza, 25, of New Richmond, Wis., was arraigned Friday on two felony charges of failing to report changes of information required by a predatory offender.

Unconditional bail was set at $50,000 and conditional bail at $20,000.

According to the complaint, on June 19 a Willmar police officer began to verify Carranza's predatory offender registration. He was required to register for life because he was convicted in Chippewa County in 2002 for second-degree criminal sexual conduct. Officers made numerous attempts to contact him in person and by phone. A detective later learned that he no longer lived at the address police had and officials at Jennie-O Turkey Store confirmed that he no longer worked for the company. He had made no attempt to register his new address as required.

His next appearance is Monday.
