A Level 3 sex offender listed in the 10 most-wanted list for Massachusetts was arrested Friday in Plymouth, State Police said Saturday.

Michael P. Cunningham, 31, who was living in Plymouth as an unregistered high-risk sex offender, was arrested without incident for numerous charges including kidnapping and two counts of aggravated assault and battery, State Police said.
