Police Search for Sex Offender 

Police believe that Robert Tilton of Clarendon, South Carolina, rode on a bus more than 1,200 miles to meet a female student he’d contacted through an on-line gaming site.

Police say Tilton got into a locked residential hall after giving a security officer a false name.

Investigators say they later found two large knives hidden in the area where Tilton entered the building.

Tilton is listed on the South Carolina sex offender registry for a 2006 conviction involving a 6-year-old.
