An accused child molester turned fugitive from Leon County has been arrested in Colorado.
Leon County Sheriff's investigators tell us Steven McAdams was captured Monday morning by U.S. Marshals in Denver, Colorado. We're told the 55-year-old was staying at the International Hostel at the time of his arrest at 8:30 this morning. The search for McAdams began about two weeks ago after learning he may have fled to Colorado. Authorities say McAdams is arrested for the continuous sexual assault of a child under the age of 10 in the Centerville area in Leon County.
McAdams is waiting to be extradited back to Texas.
