A Saugus man is under arrest and facing arraignment in Malden District Court today, after authorities allege he misreported his residence in the sex offender registry.
Vincent Pellino, of Saugus, was convicted of abusing a child in 2004. He allegedly told authorities he was living in that city with his mother, but was found residing on Eastern Ave. in Malden Thursday.
Lt. Det. Marc Gatcomb of the Malden Police Department said there was no evidence that Pellino had any interactions with student or staff at the nearby daycare center.
Gatcomb credited a tip from a concerned citizen for the arrest.
