MILWAUKEE — Hours after Brandon Cortez King was released from prison on Aug. 6 for serving 14 years for incest with a child, he cut off his GPS ankle bracelet and has been on Washington County's Most Wanted ever since. On Thursday, he was arrested in the City of Milwaukee.

An anonymous tip had King outside of Aurora Sinai Medical Center on Thursday. Officers responded and found someone who identified himself as someone other than King. The suspect was taken into custody and eventually confessed to being Brandon Cortez King.

King could face an additional six years in prison for tampering with his location monitoring system.

If you have information on who may have been assisting him since his escape, you're asked to contact law enforcement.
