From staff reports
The FBI is offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of a convicted sex offender on the lam and thought to be in Spokane. Kevin Anthony Briggs, 28, escaped police custody in Montana earlier this month and bought a one-way bus ticket to Spokane, according to a news release from the FBI. Briggs was placed under arrest on suspicion he assaulted a woman and escaped police during a transfer to a detention facility. Briggs is on probation for convictions of sex crimes, kidnapping and burglary from 2004 in two Montana counties, according to the FBI. He is described as between 5-feet 5-inches and 5-feet 7-inches tall, weighing 120 to 150 pounds with piercings and a tattoo on his lower lip. Anyone with information is asked to call the Spokane FBI office at (509) 458-8100. Briggs is considered armed and dangerous and should not be approached, the FBI said.
