Texas sex offender captured in Colorado, smiles in mugshot
A high-risk sex offender was captured in a rural area of western Teller County, Colorado, on Tuesday, the U.S. Marshals Service said. Dakota Stewart, 26, was found early in the morning near Florissant west of Colorado Springs by Teller County Sheriff's Office deputies and U.S. Marshals. The sheriff's office said it received a tip that the U.S. Marshals Service was acting on a lead saying Stewart might be in the county. Stewart, who was listed as one of Texas' 10 most wanted sex offender fugitives and was classified as armed and dangerous, was found in the Florissant Heights subdivision living at a campsite.
He had been wanted in Texas since August for two counts of failing to register as a sex offender and one count of failure to comply with sex offender registration requirements, the sheriff's office said. Stewart was smiling for his mugshot that was distributed by the sheriff's office.
