Lansford police warn of transient, a violator of Megan's Law restrictions
Scott Evan Vosburgh
Lansford police are asking people to be on the lookout for a sexually violent predator who has failed to comply with a law requiring him to register his whereabouts with police.
Scott Evan Vosburgh, 25, faces two counts of the violation, filed by Lansford Officer Brian Horos.
Vosburgh, who is listed on the state police Megan's Law website, was convicted in Carbon County Court of two counts each of indecent assault and corruption of a minor on March 8, 2007. He was sentenced by Judge Roger Nanovic on Nov. 29, 2007 to 3-9 months in state prison on each count (nine to 18 months total), followed by two years probation.
At the time, Vosburgh was on probation for criminal mischief; that was revoked.
He is a black male, 5 feet, 9 inches tall, with brown eyes and black hair.
According to an affidavit of probable cause filed with District Judge Casimir Kosciolek of Lansford, on Oct. 18, 2011, Horos received a complaint from state Trooper Fink of the Megan's law Unit, Harrisburg. Fink told Horos that Vosburgh was to be released from the state prison at Graterford, and that he was listed as a sexually violent predator. Vosburgh, Fink told Horos, would be moving in with his sister at 371 W. Ridge St., Lansford.
Horos told Fink that Vosburgh's sister had been evicted from that address and likely did not live there any more. Horos was then informed that Vosburgh would be listed as transient/homeless.
On Feb. 23, Horos received a call from Carbon County Detective Tim Nothstein, who said that Vosburgh is on then state police Megan's Law website, and is supposed to be living in Lansford. Vosburgh, Nothstein said, was not in compliance for registering his place of residence, and should be arrested for failure to comply with the Megan's Law restrictions.
On March 13, Horos received a call from the Megan's law unit headquarters in Harrisburg and the Enforcement Unit in Scranton; both stated that Vosburgh is noncompliant and that charges were to be filed by borough police.
Anyone who knows of his whereabouts is asked to contact police at (570) 645-5844. Calls will be kept confidential.
