U.S. Marshals have tracked down a convicted sex offender from San Antonio who was hiding out in Denver, Colorado.
David Martinez Maldonado, 54, was arrested Friday by the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Location and Apprehension Group.
The Texas Department of Public Safety contacted the Lone Star Fugitive Task Force in April after Maldonado failed to comply with sex offender registration, a release stated.
Authorities determined through investigative efforts that Maldonado fled from San Antonio and was hiding out at a Denver apartment. Task force officers entered the residence, identified themselves and took Maldonado into custody without incident, the release stated.
Maldonado has an extensive arrest history and violations of parole.
In 1979, Maldonado was convicted and sentenced to 15 years in a Texas jail for committing burglary of a habitation with the intent to commit sexual assault.
Since then, Maldonado has been in and out of prison three times and each time violated the conditions of his parole.
The last time was in August 2011 and a warrant was issued for his arrest in September 2011.
Texas DPS added Maldonado to the Texas 10 Most Wanted Sex Offender list last week and a $3,000 cash reward was offered for information leading to his capture.
Maldonado was being held in custody at the Denver County Jail awaiting extradition to Bexar County.
