Some inter-state cooperation between authorities in Colorado Springs and Indiana leads to child molestation arrest.

On Tuesday, April 6, detectives with the Schererville Indiana Police Department contacted Colorado Springs police about a fugitive, Robert Behmke, who was wanted out of their agency for child molestation charges with a nation wide extradition.

Springs Tactical Enforcement Unit handles these types of fugitive cases, and thanks to leads that the suspect might be staying in Fountain, officers were able to capture Behmke.

Fountain police helped Springs police coordinate the effort. Behmke was arrested on Thursday morning on the 900 block of Grinde Avenue after police found a vehicle linked to Behmke outside an apartment in the area.

Behmke now faces extradition back to Indiana on that charge of child molestation. The circumstances surrounding the crime are still vague at this point.

    Dont you think you all should hear the real story before judging this man, you dont know him so who are u to judge him. Ever think some horrble babys mama might want him in jail forever. so shut up till he's proven guilty.

    I wonder if they read him his rights before they cuffed him. We do have rights in this country you know, and no one is above the law.
