OAKLAND, Md. (AP) — Authorities are offering a $6,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of an escapee from the Garrett County jail in Oakland.

The sheriff’s office said Monday Deandre Kelly, 29, of Washington assaulted two correctional officers and forced them to open an exit door by producing what appeared to be a handgun shortly before 9 p.m. Sunday.

The agency says Kelly was being held on $100,000 bond since his arrest Saturday for alleged drug and firearm violations and lying to police.

The sheriff’s office says Kelly apparently has left the area. The FBI is assisting local and state authorities in the investigation.
