NORTHWOOD | A North Iowa man has been arrested for a sex offender registry violation and failing to appear in court.

Glen Eugene More III, 29, also known as Christopher Shane More, was charged with felony sex offender registration violation - second or subsequent offense. 

He allegedly failed to tell law enforcement when his residence and employment status changed, according to court documents.

More pleaded not guilty to the charge while in the Cerro Gordo County Jail April 9.
