A man with Haverhill ties has been placed on the state's Most Wanted Sex Offenders list.
Carlos Beltran, 43, is being sought by Haverhill Police for indecent assault and battery and failure to register as a sex offender. He's also being sought by Newton Police for violation of an abuse prevention order.
Beltran's name isn't new to police. In 2006, Beltran was convicted of sexually assaulting two Haverhill teenage girls after luring them to his home with job offers. Haverhill Police told the Eagle-Tribune at the time that Beltran encountered the two girls, ages 16 and 17, as they sought employment applications at a local fast food restaurant. He offered the girls jobs at a business he owned that dealt in stereo speakers, police said.
Beltran was convicted on two counts indecent assault and battery on a person 14 or older and served 18 months in state prison. He also served one year for possession of a device for wiretap.
Following his release, however, Massachusetts State Police said he failed to register with the Sex Offender Registry Board as required. A warrrant has been issued by Haverhill District Court for his failure to register as well as for indecent assault and battery. Newton District Court also issued a warrant for him for violation of an abuse prevention order. Beltran's wherabouts is unknown.
Anyone with information on Beltran's whereabouts is encouraged to call 1-800-KAPTURE.
