A registered sex offender who forcibly removed his GPS ankle bracelet and disappeared has been captured in Colorado, according to the Escondido Police Department.

Anthony Wayne Wilkins, 40, was last seen on Christmas Eve holding the ankle bracelet and walking near the Escondido police headquarters. When a parole agent spotted him, Wilkins ran away.

He had failed to update his sex offender registration and was considered dangerous.

Detectives told NBC 7 that in 2003, Wilkins was convicted of assault with the intent to commit rape. He’s also been convicted of other crimes involving drugs and evading law enforcement.
