EDMONTON - Missing high-risk offender Michael Sean Stanley crossed the border to the United States, police in Edmonton said Thursday, but has not been taken into custody, according to reports.
The 48-year-old left Edmonton on Oct. 1, even though he has conditions to remain in the city.
Through his electronic monitoring bracelet, police managed to trace him near Lloydminster, Alta., and notified the RCMP to move in. But they were too late.
Stanley managed to cut off the bracelet, which was found on the roof of a local business, sparking a multi-province search.
On Monday, his purple Chevrolet Blazer was seized from a home in Lethbridge, where he has ties in the area.
In 2006, Stanley was convicted of luring a couple kids into a vacant suite and holding them there. Police said he also has a long history of sexual related offences and has taken kids from playgrounds in the past.
U.S. authorities have identified Stanley as a high-risk subject and are searching for him, according to reports.
It’s unknown how we crossed the border.
