Bartie, II, 30, 2013 Moeling Street, Lake Charles, at the corner of Kingsley and Elder Street. Initially Bartie gave a false identification to the deputies. During further investigation, they learned Bartie’s correct identification and that he had an active warrant for failure to register as a sex offender.
Bartie, who was convicted of molestation of a juvenile in Calcasieu Parish in October 2001, was arrested and booked into the Calcasieu Correctional Center and charged with failure to register as a sex offender.
Judge Wilford Carter set his bond at $2,000.
CPSO Deputy Christopher Daigle was the arresting deputy in the case.
