DENVER – U.S. Marshals captured a wanted sex offender in Aurora this afternoon, officials reported in a media release.

A warrant was issued for Matthew Preston Caulk after he absconded from a Denver halfway house on Feb. 15, the U.S. Marshals Service said. Members of the Colorado Violent Offender Task Force finally found and arrested the fugitive about 2 p.m. Sunday at a house in the 3800 block of South Ventura Street in Aurora.

“Despite the weather conditions here in Colorado we continued to pursue Caulk night and day,” said Chief Deputy Kenneth Deal.  “When a dangerous predator is on the loose we don’t stop.  A CrimeStoppers tip and a lot of old fashioned detective work led us to Caulk.”
