MISSOULA, Mont. (AP) - Police say they’ve found no indication a man who robbed a Motel 6 and a Taco Bell in Missoula is the person who escaped from the police station in Bozeman after his arrest on suspicion of sexual assault.

The Missoulian reported Friday (https://tinyurl.com/mt4cs58 ) they found nothing to suggest the man who robbed the two businesses on Thursday was the 28-year-old Briggs.

Bozeman police had said Briggs might be headed for Missoula, and Missoula police confirmed Briggs had been in their city Saturday, hours after his escape.

Similarities in the descriptions of Briggs and the robber prompted lockdowns at some Missoula schools.

Bozeman police say Briggs escaped when he was left alone in an unlocked room during a shift change. Police say he was handcuffed and his legs were shackled.
