Authorities arrested a sex offender Saturday after they say he was living with three children in Hawkins County. Police said the kids are 5, 9, and 13 years old.

According to police, 38-year-old Troy Lee Hamilton is a sex offender who is not allowed to live with minor, non-biological children.

Police added they were serving warrants on a different person living at the residence on Old Highway 70S in Rogersville when a deputy was given information that Hamilton was living there. A detective was then contacted who said Hamilton has been advised of his restrictions and was registered at a different location - Strahl Drive in Rogersville. A warrant was then issued for Hamilton's arrest.

Hamilton was arrested Saturday at the intersection of Petersburg Road and Pin Hook Road and taken to the Hawkins County Jail.
