Tucson, AZ - A high level sex offender
who had fled the state to avoid arrest was captured late Saturday morning in
downtown Tucson by U.S. Marshals.
G. Vaudry, 32, was arrested on May 3, 2007 at the Greyhound bus station
after returning to Arizona from North Carolina. Vaudry was wanted by the
Benson Police Department for failing to update his sex offender registration
and also had an outstanding Tucson Police Department warrant.
Members of the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task
Force took Vaudry into custody without incident, even though Vaudry was
traveling under a false identity and when asked about his identity, gave
authorities a fake name.
Vaudry is facing over 10 years in prison if
convicted for the sex offender registration violation. The warrant from
Tucson Police Department stems from a Failure to Appear on a indecent
exposure charge. Vaudry was arrested for masturbating outside of a woman’s
window at a residence near midtown. Authorities were able to positively link
Vaudry to the scene due to DNA from semen left at the location.
In August, 2006, President George W. Bush
signed the Adam Walsh Act which made the United States Marshals Service the
lead law enforcement agency responsible for investigating sex offender
registration violations. In 2006, U.S. Marshals arrested over 7,300 sex
