A convicted sex offender from Black River Falls has been arrested in Colorado.
Authorities in Jackson County issued a statewide alert for Caleb Rave, 18, of Black River Falls, in October after he removed his electronic monitoring/GPS unit and disappeared.
The US Marshall Service arrested Rave shortly before 8 a.m., Tuesday in the Denver Colorado area.
According to an alert sent out by the Wisconsin Crime Alert Network, Caleb Rave is wanted in Jackson County for four counts of felony bail jumping for failure to appear for the charge of first degree sexual assault of a child. Rave was found guilty in a jury trial earlier this year of first degree sexual assault of a child. Prior to his sentencing, which was set for October 31, Rave was placed on house arrest and electronic monitoring.
On Monday, October 20, Rave's electronic monitoring device sent out a signal that he was outside of the area he was allowed. At approximately 10:09 a.m., the device stopped sending a signal.
Rave is being held in a jail in Denver until arrangements can be made to have him brought back to Jackson County.
