DENVER – The U.S. Marshals Service and Metro Denver Crime Stoppers is seeking the assistance of the public to help locate a federally convicted sex offender. Matthew Preston CAULK is wanted by the U.S. Marshals Service for Violation of Federal Supervised Release. In May of 2010 Matthew Preston CAULK, age 46, was sentenced to serve 45 months in federal prison for failing to register as a sex offender. After his term of incarceration, CAULK was ordered by U.S. District Judge Walker D. Miller to serve 8 years on supervised release. CAULK’s federal conviction for failure to register as a sex offender follows a prior sexual assault in Washington State, after which he moved to Colorado but failed to register here. In 2007, while unregistered and on the run in Colorado, CAULK committed another sexual assault in Lakewood, for which he was convicted and served a state sentence. CAULK was located after he was featured on America’s Most Wanted and local media outlets, after it was discovered that he was with a runaway minor girl and his federal sentence followed his state sentence.
“We want the public to be aware and help us capture this violent predator before he strikes again.” said U.S. Marshal John Kammerzell. “Public safety is always our primary concern.”
CAULK absconded from a half-way house in Denver and a federal warrant was issued for his arrest on February 15, 2013.
Anyone with information on CAULK’s whereabouts is urged to contact the U.S. Marshals Service at 1-877-WANTED2 (1-877-926-8332), or Metro Denver Crime Stoppers at 720-913-STOP(7867) A reward of up to $2,500 is offered for information leading directly to CAULK’s arrest.
