Yesterday at approximately 1400 hours The U.S. Marshals Service Colorado Violent Offender Task Force (COVOTF) located and apprehended wanted sex offender Matthew Preston CAULK at a home on the 3800 Block of South Ventura Street in Aurora. CAULK was wanted by the U.S. Marshals Service for Violation of Federal Supervised Release.
“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.”
CAULK absconded from a half-way house in Denver and a federal warrant was issued for his arrest on February 15, 2013. Since the warrant was issued COVOTF investigators have been aggressively pursuing all leads.
The Colorado Violent Offender Task Force is led by the United States Marshals Service and is comprised of officers from several different state and local agencies including the Douglas County and Weld County Sheriff’s Offices. The Task Force works closely with Metro Denver CrimeStoppers on many important cases such as CAULK.
