SEAFORD, Del.- Delaware State Police say a Seaford man is behind bars after troopers arrested him for theft and failure to re-register as a sex offender.

Last week, troopers investigated a theft of video games from a vehicle parked on Palmetto Street in Seaford. Police say that during their investigation they were able to determine that 35-year-old Patrick J. Monceax had stolen the video games from the victim's vehicle.
 
According to police, troopers also discovered that Monceax sold the games to a local business for cash. After making contact with the business owner, troopers were able to recover all the video games and return them to the victim.  Troopers later located Monceax at a friend's house, also located on Palmetto Street. 
 
Troopers placed Monceax in custody without incident and transported him to Troop 5.   During their investigation, troopers discovered that Monceax is a registered sex offender and did not re-register his new address with the state within three business days as required by law. According to the Delaware Sex Offender Registry, Monceax is a "moderate-risk" sex offender who was convicted in November 1998 of second-degree statutory rape. 
 
Monceax was charged with failure to re-register as a sex offender, 24 counts of theft, 24 counts of receiving stolen property and 24 counts of selling stolen property.
 
He is being held in the Sussex Correction Institute in lieu of $25,000 secured bail.
