NEW DETAILS: U.S. Marshals believe Larry Twigg was living in Ankeny

DES MOINES (KWWL) -

A former Waterloo teacher that was convicted of having an inappropriate relationship with a student, has been arrested for allegedly violating the sex offender registry.

Larry David Twigg, 54, was arrested in Ankeny Wednesday night at around 9:30 p.m. by a task force made up of member of the U.S. Marshals Service, Department of Criminal Investigation and the Polk County Sheriff's Office.  He was released from the jail early Thursday morning after paying a $2,000 bond.

Deputy Michael Powell of the U.S. Marshals Service says they believe Twigg was living in Ankeny but registered as living in Waterloo.

Twigg was found guilty of five counts of lascivious conduct with a minor in Black Hawk County Court in April after a two day trial.  He was sentenced to two years in prison and 10 years of probation.  He was also required to register as a sex offender.

Police say Twigg had a 17-year-old male student come to his house in December of 2009 and January of 2010 and engage in inappropriate behavior including strip poker and covering the student with chocolate syrup.

Twigg was out of prison on an appeal bond while his case is heard by a higher court.
