POPLAR BLUFF, Mo. (AP) - A convicted sex offender accused of cutting off his ankle monitor during a doctor’s appointment in Poplar Bluff has been captured in St. Louis County.

Online court records show that 55-year-old John Squires was charged Friday with violating a condition of lifetime supervision and first-degree property damage. No attorney is listed for him in online court records.

KMOV-TV (http://bit.ly/1xP5DAe ) reports that Squires is accused of fleeing from probation supervision Wednesday. Police captured him Friday night at a home.

Squires pleaded guilty in July to first-degree statutory sodomy and attempted first-degree statutory sodomy in Christian County. Online court records show he was sentenced to two 10-year sentences in the Missouri Department of Corrections. But the court suspended the execution of Squires’ sentences and placed him on five years of supervised probation.
