MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO)— A level 3 sex offender who police said went on the lam earlier this week has been apprehended.

Gregory Lewis Smith, 59, somehow cut off his GPS ankle bracelet and took off on Tuesday. He had last been seen at the Hennepin County Government Center in downtown Minneapolis.

Officers got a tip that Smith was at a residence in south Minneapolis.

He was apprehended by Minneapolis Police and Department of Corrections officers at about 7 p.m. Thursday.

Smith has two previous sexual assault convictions in Illinois and was on intensive supervised release in Hennepin County for sexually assaulting a 15-year-old girl.

    We wouldn’t have this issue if he was executed in the first place! He’s probably applying for a janitors job at High School right now…

      Nah – didn’t you know … he “found religion” … his new job is as a Catholic PRIEST – in charge of the “youth ministeries” …

        Too bad socialist public school teachers have always been worse than Catholic Priests on the child molester scale.

    Swanson will be in IOWA state prison, and will be only able to play with himself while he’s in PC….and it won’t be a S.O that gets to him…..it will be a dude with organized connections……and Smith will go to Lino Lakes, and then back to Moose Lake for the duration……..

    Why can’t they just cut his junk off? I mean it’s enough that we have enough of these idiots out there doing harm to others… just cut it off! It’s not being used for anything!

      Because Nazis used to remove reproductive organs from people, and we have a cruel and unusual punishment clause in the Constitution.

    He got a job as a School teacher. They love the bling he has around his ankle. Glad to see he isn’t white. Somehow everybody thinks sex offenders are only white and in the catholic church.
