Youth Pastor Matthew Linngred is on the run

MatthewLinngren Youth pastor Matthew E. Linngred was convicted of the distribution child pornography. Just before he was to begin his 15 year sentence, he slipped his monitoring bracelet and went missing. 

A nationwide warrant was issued for the arrest of Matthew E. Linngren, 38, who was sentenced last week in U.S. District Court in St. Paul by Judge Donovan Frank. Linngren's criminal history includes a conviction for having sexual contact with a 10-year-old boy while with the Columbia Heights church.

If you see this man, or if he attempts to become your youth pastor, keep your children away from him and call the police.
