WEST UNION, Iowa (AP) - A man accused of cutting off a GPS monitoring device on his ankle has been arrested in northeast Iowa.

The Allamakee County Sheriff’s Office says 30-year-old Tom Cannon, of West Union, was taken into custody Monday afternoon without incident. He was found in a house trailer.

Authorities say Cannon had been scheduled to report to a county jail Monday for a sentence related to a sexual abuse charge. He failed to show up, and he is accused of cutting off a GPS monitoring device on his ankle.

Cannon has been taken to the Fayette County Jail. It’s unclear if he will face additional charges. Court records do not list an attorney.
