Person Of Interest In Clements Case Now In Custody

By  | 

A man wanted in connection to the murder of Colorado prison chief Tom Clements is now in custody.

El Paso County sheriff's deputies arrested Thomas Guolee on unrelated warrants Thursday afternoon.

Authorities have been looking for Goulee since his name surfaced during the investigation last week. The Sheriff's Office says he's not a suspect in Clements' murder, but as a suspected member of the same white supremacist gang Evan Ebel was a member of, Goulee's name has emerged as a person of interest.

EPSO Lt. Jeff Kramer told 11 News that the Sheriff's Office has been apprehending other 211 gang members and known associates of Evan Ebel for questioning. Investigators have been questioning these people for information regarding Clements' murder and Ebel's other actions.

Investigators won't say exactly where he was taken into custody, but neighbors of a home near Vickers and Academy in Colorado Springs tell us based on what they saw, that is where Guolee was arrested.

The neighbors tell us they have seen the man who lives in the home several times, but aren't sure how long he's been living in the house.

The couple tells us that police were out here last week searching for Guolee and asking neighbors about him, but as far as they knew nothing had come of it.

Guolee is currently being held in jail on no bond.
