A Florence man was arrested after allegedly watching children walking home from school and violating probation, according to the Fremont County Sheriff's Office.

Barry Eugene Burrous, 38, was held at the Fremont County jail, court records show.

A former sheriff's deputy recognized a man he identified as Burrous driving around McKinley Elementary School in Canon City around 3:30 p.m. Friday, according to a statement released by sheriff's office spokesman Capt. Don Pinover.

The deputy said that Burrous was driving very slow and appeared to be watching kids walking home from school, the statement read.

The sheriff's office notified Burrous' probation officer, who got a probation violation warrant for Burrous.

Burrous was arrested at his home without incident at 5:30 p.m., according to the statement.

Burrous had been allegedly watching young girls at the school and "waiting for the right one," prompting his bond to be raised to $50,000, according to Pinover's statement.
