TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

A convicted sex offender was apprehended on Tucson's west side Thursday, according to U.S. Marshals.

A felony arrest warrant was issued for 27-year-old Jereal Turner on August 2 after he reportedly removed his security ankle monitor before leaving a halfway house unsupervised.

On August 22, Deputy U.S. Marshals and investigators established a perimeter around a residence in the 4400 block of Wetmore and Schafer that was associated with Turner. Authorities conducted interviews at the scene and Turner allegedly attempted to flee out the back door but was apprehended by the perimeter team.

He was booked into the Pima County Jail on charges of failure to register as a sex offender.

Police said Turner was sentenced to five years in prison in 2007 for sexually assaulting a 6-year-old, whom he reportedly knew. He was required to wear the ankle monitor while classified as a level three sex offender.

Authorities may charge subjects who reportedly gave false information to police during the investigation.

"A dangerous fugitive's run has ended after several weeks," U.S. Marshal David Gonzales said. "By working together, U.S. Marshals Service personnel and task force members were successful in tracking down this convicted child molester."
