The Los Alamos Sheriff's Office initiated an investigation that led to today's noon capture of a convicted sex offender who's been living in the 2000 block of 34th Street for several months.
The Sheriff's Office, U.S. Marshals Service and local police participated in the arrest of Bruce Crousser, 44, a convicted sex offender from Missouri. Crousser was apprehended at a local diner about to have lunch. He failed to register as a sex offender as required by law, according to officials.
"Court records show Mr. Crousser was convicted of several sex crimes, some of which involved minor children," Lucero said. "He's been working for a contractor doing business in the local area.”
