A white supremacist gang member who cut off his GPS tracking bracelet and disappeared for 40 days is again in custody in Colorado. Without the tracing device, police say his vast array of racist tattoos helped with his re-arrest.
Ricky Reasoner, 33, identified as a member of a prison gang known as the Aryan Syndicate, was apprehended early Thursday in Lakewood, Colo., by police officers and members of the Colorado Fugitive Apprehension task force. He was arrested without incident.
Reasoner disappeared on June 7 in Colorado when he used tools to remove the GPS tracking device that helped authorities locate him. Immediately afterward, a nationwide alert bulletin was issued describing him as armed and dangerous. He was believed to be in either the Denver or Fort Collins areas.
Authorities say Reasoner has an extensive criminal history, including illegal possession of a firearm by a felon, and affiliations with white supremacist gangs that operate in and out of the prison systems.
Reasoner is covered in tattoos, including an iron cross on his neck and logos of the “Peckerwoods” and “Featherwoods” white supremacist gangs on his legs, authorities said in a wanted bulletin. A tattoo that says “fuck cops” is above his right eye. The whites of his eyes have been tattooed black.
