Salinas police have arrested a 63-year-old registered sex offender who cut off his tracking device earlier this week.

Edward Lee Harvey, a homeless registered sex offender required to wear a GPS tracking device, allegedly cut off the device and left it at a  home in the 100 block of Russell Road, police said.

Officers noticed on Monday that Harvey had been at the home for a long time and when they arrived the check on him they found the device  without him.

Investigators were then put on the lookout for Harvey, who was found Thursday around 11 a.m. in the Harden Ranch Shopping Center.

Harvey was arrested and booked into Monterey County Jail on suspicion of a parole violation and vandalism for cutting the tracking  device.
