CAPTURED: Ronald Lee Kuehn

A convicted sex offender wanted by local authorities for failing to register his address has been found.

The U.S. Marshals Service said they've captured Ronald Kuehn, who was featured March 7 in The Forum's "Fugitive Focus."

Kuehn was arrested this week, according to Dan Orr, chief deputy U.S. Marshal for North Dakota.

In September 2006, Kuehn was found guilty of luring minors for sex and possessing drug paraphernalia. He had been accused of leaving money and notes requesting sex acts on and near a foot bridge over Interstate 94 in Fargo.

Fargo South High School students found the notes on the foot bridge and police later arrested Kuehn.

After the conviction, Kuehn was sentenced to a one-year suspended jail sentence and placed on supervised probation.

Last December, an arrest warrant was issued for Kuehn, who has been designated a moderate risk to reoffend, when he failed to register. He's required to register as a sex offender until 2031.

The Forum's "Fugitive Focus" is a weekly spotlight on people wanted by local law enforcement agencies. It started March 7 with publication of Kuehn's information.

Look for the feature on Mondays in the newspaper.
