Fugitive sex offender, Baca, apprehended
Detroit Lakes Minnesota 511 Washington Avenue 56501

Level 3 predatory sex offender Robert Baca has been arrested in Billings, Montana.

Baca had his GPS monitoring device taken off last week by a Department of Corrections agent because Baca's time for that had expired. He then took off sometime over the weekend, prompting Becker County authorities to call a "Code Red" because he was unaccounted for.

Baca was convicted of raping a woman in Detroit Lakes in 1997 and has a history of violating his probation stipulations, which includes checking in with his parol officer regularly and notifying police if he moves.
