Sheriff Darren Campbell stated: On Wednesday, June 26, 2019 Iredell County Sheriff’s Office Deputy C. James who is one of the Sex Offender Compliance Deputies was notified about a Registered Sex Offender, Michael Connor Lamp Jr., had updated his address to 604 Foxcroft Terrace, Statesville.

Based on the documents gathered through the course of the investigation Michael Lamp Jr., was charged with one count of Felony Violation of Sex Offender Residence as well as one count of Felony Failing to Register by providing False Information.

Michael Connor Lamp Jr., Lamp was arrested on Sunday June 30, 2019 by the Statesville Police Department.
