Police: Illinois sex offender arrested in Gettysburg

Posted: Updated:
GETTYSBURG, Pa. (WHTM) -

U.S. Marshals announced they arrested Illinois native Brett A. Jacobs, a convicted sex offender, in Gettysburg on Monday.

On September 14, 2007, in Boone County, Illinois, Jacobs was convicted of aggravated criminal sexual abuse against a juvenile. He was incarcerated until September of 2012.

Jacobs was then paroled and required to register as a convicted sex offender. His last registration was in October of 2012 at an address in Mundelein, Illinois.

In December of 2012, Illinois parole officials learned Jacobs moved without notifying them or updating his address. They issued a warrant charging Jacobs with parole violations.

Investigators determined he had fled to the Gettysburg area and that he frequently visited a home in the 500 block of Boyd's School Road.

Following police surveillance on Monday, July 22, officers saw a man matching Jacobs's description arrive at around 3 p.m.

The man fled on foot into an overgrown area south of the 500 block of Boyd's School Road. Officials—including Pennsylvania State Troopers and officers from the Cumberland Township Police Department—searched that area for about 15 minutes before finding the man and identifying him as Jacobs.

Jacobs was charged as a fugitive, and he was committed to the Adams County Prison in lieu of $50,000 cash bail. Jacobs remains under investigation for possible Megan's Law violations.
