Lockdown Lifted at Three Pueblo County Schools

Three Pueblo County schools that were locked-down after a car belonging to a fugitive sex offender was found near the buildings are back to normal. Rye Elementary School, Craver Middle School, and Rye High School are no longer on lockdown.

11 News was told deputies with the Pueblo County Sheriff's Office found the car belonging to 42-year-old Robert Thompson near the school buildings. Thompson, who was convicted on several counts of child sexual assault, failed to show up for court Friday.

Thompson, who was wanted on $1 million bond, is now in custody.

    Even if his car was found miles away I'm sure a couple mile walk would be no problem for a kiddie rapist with a big reward for himself at the end of that walk! I'm glad he's back in custody and I hope someone will murder him soon in prison! Funny how child molesters can escape back on the streets so easily..

    The suspect vehicle was found miles from the schools on Old San Isabel Road, not on school grounds. Thanks
