Manhunt Continues; Armed and Dangerous

Posted: Updated:
HARDIN -

As authorities in Montana's Big Horn County are still on a manhunt for a Crow native man who is considered armed and dangerous Tuesday.

According to Big Horn County Undersheriff Michael Fuss, the man works for Crow Tribe's Fish And Game Department, and was last seen driving a red Dodge truck owned by the Crow Fish and Game.

"The plate is F&G5. It's got a black bumper on it. It sticks out very good," said Undersheriff Fuss.

Many people in Hardin didn't know about the manhunt Tuesday afternoon, but some did through Facebook and other social media.

"Normally, I don't bring my laptop to work, but I did this week because my daughter is on a missionary trip to Italy," said Ginnie Ladwig. "One of my Facebook friends saying there was an alert out."

Ginnie and others say a manhunt is a rare occurrence for the area.

"Very seldom do we ever have any kind of crime," said Ginnie.

"It is very scary to have something like that happening in a small town," said Jena Andres. Both Ginnie and Jena said they are worried about the safety of townspeople, including kids. Jena said she is going to lay low until the man is captured.

"I'm gonna just go home, and my kids will probably just stay home, watch the news, and hopefully he gets caught soon," said Jena.

If you see the man, you are urged to stay away from him, and contact Big Horn County Sheriff's Office at (406)665-9825.
