Warrant issued for on-the-loose sex offender with an epic mullet [PHOTO]
Yesterday, the Minnesota Department of Corrections issued an alert about Rommel Fritz, a level three predatory sex offender who has been on the loose since Sunday. A warrant is out for his arrest.
Fritz has been living in the Sandstone area. He's white, 5'08" and 193 pounds, with brown hair and brown eyes. And assuming he hasn't gotten a haircut, he sports an epic mullet that should make him easy to spot anywhere between here and 1980.
According to a DOC press release, Fritz, 52, is on "Intensive Supervised Release" after he was convicted of first-degree sexual conduct against an underage female. He was released from the Rush City prison in June 2012. The DOC isn't saying what Fritz did to violate the terms of his supervised release.
"He is known for riding his blue Schwinn mountain bicycle and may be pulling a bicycle trailer filled with his belongings," the release continues.
The DOC advises citizens not to approach Fritz if you see him. Instead, call 911 or the DOC's 24-hour tipline at 651-603-0026.
