Pittsburgh Police arrested a Megan’s Law offender at the Rivers Casino Sunday afternoon on warrants after he’d failed to notify authorities that he’d moved.

Security at the North Shore casino notified Pennsylvania State Police that Moses Alexander, 60, of Uptown, had been spotted on the premises around 1:15 p.m.

Alexander, who had been convicted of rape in Ohio in 1980 and was subject to the residency and notification requirements of Megan’s Law, hadn’t updated his address with authorities after he was released from Allegheny County Jail on an unrelated charge Oct. 10. A warrant for his arrest was issued Nov. 20.

Police from the Zone 1 station picked Alexander up at the casino and placed him under arrest. He was back at the county jail Sunday night awaiting arraignment.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
