Cheyenne Police have captured a man who has been wanted for sexual assault of a minor for well over a year, according to a spokesman for the Cheyenne Police Department.

Officer Kevin Malatesta says the CPD first started looking for Cody Nelson in April of 2016. But last month someone using the Silent Witness program gave police some information about Nelson's whereabouts and Malatesta says he was recently arrested in Cheyenne.

Because the information led to Nelson's arrest, the caller received a $500 reward. People can always give police information about criminal suspects using the Silent Witness tip line at 638-TIPS or by going online.

Tipsters can remain anonymous and may be eligible for a cash reward of up to $1,000.
