Authorities have issued a warrant for a Level III sex offender on the loose after he removed his GPS ankle bracelet in Faribault, the Star Tribune reports.

Twenty-five-year-old George McIntosh Jr. of Waterville served time in prison for two third-degree criminal sexual conduct convictions in Le Sueur County in 2008. McIntosh is accused of assaulting girls ages 14 and 15.

The Minnesota Level 3 Predatory Offender Registry says McIntosh used alcohol to gain compliance in his offenses.

The fugitive removed his bracelet on Oct. 22, according to WCCO.

McIntosh is described as white, 5 feet 9 inches tall, 160 pounds, with shaved red hair and blue eyes.

Authorities say to not confront McIntosh. Anyone with information is asked to call 911 or the DOC’s 24-hour tip line at 651-603-0026.
