BOZEMAN - A registered sex offender who was being sought by police after he reportedly broke off his GPS monitor was apprehended following a foot pursuit in Bozeman on Sunday.
Bojan J. Troftgruben, 22, was convicted of sexual intercourse without consent on Aug. 1, 2011 in Park County, according to court papers. He initially registered as a transient and was supposed to register each month, but did not in April, deputy county attorney Shannon Foley said. He then reportedly removed his GPS monitor and failed to be in contact with his probation officer.
On April 4, a concerned citizen contacted Bozeman police with Troftgruben's current location. Officers responded to the location, but Troftgruben fled, court papers state.
Police received information again on April 7 as to Troftgruben's location and when they went there he reportedly ran away on foot. After a lengthy foot pursuit, Troftgruben was apprehended at a residence, court papers state.
Judge Bryan Adams set his bail at $75,000, saying that he is concerned for the community's safety. He is being held in the Gallatin County Detention Center.
