The U.S. Marshals, the Michigan Department of Corrections Absconder Recovery Unit, and the Canon City, Co., Police Department announce the arrest of two escaped Michigan DOC offenders from Lake COunty, Mich

Kenneth Lee Grauman, 32, and Gregory Allen Bradshaw, 23, broke out of a minimum security facility in Baldwin, Mich., Sept. 29.

The pair fled from police on at least three occasions in Michigan since the escape and are believed to be responsible for numerous home invasions and at least one stolen vehicle in Allegan, County, Mich., during their flight from authorities.

The Marshals Fugitive Task Force and the local and state low enforcement agencies conducted a joint fugitive investigation and developed information that the fugitives were likely in Colorado.

Information was forwarded to the U.S. Marshals in Colorado and a point investigation was initiated with the Canon City Police Department and the Fremont County Sheriff’s Department. Information was developed that indicated the fugitives were in Canon City, and at approximately 7 p.m. (EST), deputy U.S. Marshals and local officers observed the fugitives at a motel in Canon City. The fugitives were taken into custody by the Pueblo, Co., SWAT Team without incident.

The fugitives’ girlfriends, Laura Lee Grauman and Brittany Rector, were also located during the arrest. The two have been arrested and will be charged in Fremont County, Co.

Grauman and Bradshaw are being held at the Freemont County Jail awaiting extradition to Michigan on their felony charges.
