Man faces charge of failing to register as sex offender


— A Joplin police officer checking out a complaint about possible drug-related activity in the 2300 block of South Texas Avenue on Wednesday afternoon ended up arresting a resident of the neighborhood for alleged failure to register as a sex offender.

Junis L. Dimes III, 37, was arrested on the charge after an officer determined that Dimes allegedly had been living at that location since February without reporting his change of address to the Jasper County Sheriff’s Department as required by state law.
