A Princeton man police describe as a sex offender with a violent history has been captured in Shreveport, according to Bossier City police.

Earlier this week, Bossier Crime Stoppers offered a reward in asking the public for help in finding 27-year-old Terrell D. Fuller, who was wanted for failure to register as a sex offender.

According to a release issued by Bossier City Public Information Officer Mark Natale, Fuller was arrested late Thursday morning after receiving a tip. Agents found Fuller outside the Villa Norte Apartments in the 1600 block of Fullerton Street.

Natale says Fuller attempted to flee, but agents caught up him after a brief foot chase. Fuller was then booked into the Caddo Correctional Center.

Fuller is classified as a Tier III sex offender, the most serious sex offender classification. As such, Fuller is required to register as a sex offender once a year and whenever he changes addresses for the rest of his life. However, Fuller has failed to do so.  

Natale says the tip that led to the arrest did not come in through Bossier Crime Stoppers, so the reward money was not paid out.
