Sexually Violent Predator Located and Arrested


The Lakewood Police Department has located and arrested the Sexually Violent Predator, or SVP, we were looking for.
On November 5, 2013 at about 9:45 pm Gregory Alan Buerge (10-01-62) was located and arrested by Lakewood Police Agents. Buerge is required by law to register quarterly with the local police department in the jurisdiction he plans to reside in. Buerge was most recently released from the Department of Corrections in March of this year. It appears as though Buerge had lived at more than one address since then and had complied with the registration requirement. On August 20th of this year, Buerge indicated that he would be residing in Lakewood at 5637 W. Colfax Ave. #2B. Buerge was not on parole at that time.
On November 1st, a random check of Buerge’s address found that he had left without notifying authorities. He has not been seen or accounted for since and it is believed that Buerge was at the W. Colfax address until late October. Buerge was originally convicted of “attempted sexual assault on a child.” Lakewood detectives obtained a warrant for Buerge’s arrest.
Burege was arrested wtihout incident and is currently being held at the Jefferson County Jail.
