WOLF POINT, Mont. (AP) - The Fort Peck Assiniboine & Sioux Tribes are offering reward money for information aiding in the apprehension of six inmates who escaped from the Fort Peck tribal jail in Poplar earlier this month.

On June 7, the Fort Peck Tribal Court posted on Facebook that 13 people had escaped from the tribal jail. On Friday, the Roosevelt County sheriff’s office posted a notice on Facebook saying the tribes were offering a reward for information leading to the six who remain at large.

Sheriff Jason Frederick told The Billings Gazette that the escapes took place in several different incidents.
