A registered sex offender from Long Island has been arrested for allegedly failing to report having a social media profile to the state’s sex offender registry, Suffolk County police said March 31.

Michael Iannello, 30, of Lake Ronkonkoma, was arrested Monday evening and charged with failure to report a change, a violation of the sex offender statute of the state’s corrections law, police said.

Detectives said a joint investigation with Suffolk County probation officers led them to learn Iannello allegedly failed to register his Facebook account, which is required under state law.

In a news release, cops said he also “had planned a trip to Disney World in Orlando, Florida in June of 2014.”

State records show Iannello has been a Level 2 registered sex offender since a 2011 conviction on a charge of first-degree attempted disseminating indecent material to a minor.

He was scheduled to face a judge Tuesday at First District Court in Central Islip for arraignment.
