A Wisconsin firefighter who fled Milwaukee was arrested by the Montana Highway Patrol on Friday night in Big Horn County, just days after an FBI search of his engine house related to a child pornography investigation.  44-year-old Robert Rutley was arrested by MHP without incident during a traffic stop, four days after the FBI had obtained an arrest warrant for him on charges of possession and distribution of child pornography, according to an FBI press release.

 
MHP Trooper Eric Winburn said the arrest occurred at a Conoco gas station in Crow Agency between 7 and 8 p.m.  A deputy with the Big Horn County Sheriff’s Office spotted Rutley’s vehicle earlier and contacted MHP.  The FBI Milwaukee Division’s Child Exploitation Task Force carried out a federal search warrant on February 10th of the engine house to which Rutley was assigned.
