Rowan County deputies recently arrested a sex offender with an address last registered in Mooresville for noncompliance with North Carolina law.

On Tuesday, Rodney Albert Shearer Jr., 28, of Allman Road, was arrested in Cabarrus County for failing to report a change of address as a registered sex offender, the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office stated in a news release.

Authorities said Shearer moved from the home that he was registered at in Rowan County, and warrants were obtained for his arrest once detectives learned of the move.

Deputies stated he was arrested in Cabarrus County late Tuesday evening and was to be taken back to Rowan County to face felony charges.

State records show Shearer was convicted of three counts of indecent liberties with a minor in 2013.
