On July 28, 2021, the Aurora Police Department assisted members of the Oro Valley, Arizona Police Department with apprehending a wanted fugitive who resides in Aurora. Aurora Police arrested Mark Lindrud (DOB 01/17/1972) for a warrant issued in Arizona for numerous counts of Sexual Conduct with a Minor and Sexual Abuse of a Minor.

The Aurora Police Department is notifying the public of this arrest because Mr. Lindrud is currently employed as a school teacher at Vista Peak Preparatory school in Aurora. He has been placed on administrative leave.  During the course of the investigation, it was also learned that Mr. Lindrud has worked at more than eight Denver metro area schools in his 20 year tenure as a teacher.
