Four men wanted for failure to register as sex offenders were arrested Thursday, according to the Beaufort County Detention Center.
The offenders are sought by the Beaufort County Sheriff's Office's Sex Offender Registry Management division, which monitors all county residents on the registry.
The highest level of offenders, Tier 3, must check in with the Sheriff's Office every three months, Capt. Bob Bromage said. Tier 2 offenders must check in every six months.
On Thursday, Keith Demetrius Pryor, 36, of Burton was charged with a first offense of failure to register, stemming from his conviction in 2005 for lewd or lascivious conduct with a victim under 16 years old, according to the jail log and court records.

He pleaded guilty in 2013 to a first offense of failure to register, court records show.

Daise was convicted in 1995 of kidnapping.
