CRYSTAL BEACH — A convicted sex offender from Burleson County is back in jail for failing to register with local authorities after he moved to Crystal Beach earlier this month, Galveston County Sheriff’s deputies said.

Arthur Furhman, 47, was arrested Thursday by a deputy running compliance checks on other registered sex offenders living on the Bolivar Peninsula after the deputy received a tip from the Precinct 6 Constable’s Office, according to a news release from the sheriff’s office.

Residents living in unincorporated areas of Galveston County are asked to contact the sheriff’s office at 409-770-5201 to report any concerns about a registered sex offender.

Fuhrman was charged with failing to register as a sex offender and remains in the Galveston County Jail with his bond set at $60,000.
